For C-STUNNERS Kabiru created sculptures from objects found on the streets of Nairobi that remind of oversized glasses, which he wears in his self-portraits. >> >> >> >>

“Kabiru’s practice is an on-going distillation of the idea that when we cover or shield our eyes, we are masked. The mask transforms the wearer, opening new possibilities of seeing, or experiencing the world. In this sense Kabiru’s work draws on the concepts of the Afrofuturist imagining of the future in performative and innovative ways.” (Wall Street International) >>
