Jackie Karuti is an artist based in Nairobi. Her practice is largely experimental and employs the use of new media through drawings, video and installations. Her work is founded on ideas around knowledge production and accessibility as well as the depths of possibility enabled by radical imagination. Karuti has participated in several exhibitions and residencies both locally and abroad and is an alumna of the Gasworks residency program in London as well as Àsìko; a roaming Pan African art school designed to redress the frequently outdated or non-existent artistic and curatorial curricula at tertiary institutions across Africa.
Jackie’s work is displayed at the LIAF Exhibition in Svolvær throughout September.
