Jackie Karuti: Notes Movement Method
Exhibition preview and book launch 4-8pm Circle Art Gallery 27 April 2022
Jackie Karuti was the main prize winner of the 2020 Henrike Grohs Art Award. This book is published as part of the award, with support from the Goethe-Institut and Grohs family. Additional support was provided by The African Arts Trust. This book was produced by the Visual Arts Network of South Africa.
The book is led by thoughts around Karuti’s ongoing method of inquiry; How Clouds are Formed which has been a developing body of work assembled in many parts using objects, images, spare parts & movements. The intention was to produce an artist workbook that sends one out into the field to move, question & discover. It is largely an attempt to recognize the work that emerges in the present while navigating various site visits through drawings, text, sculptural forms and moving images.
Text & image contributions by Wanja Kimani, Bojana Cvejić, Jackie Karuti & Roseline Olang’.
