FUTURE REFLEXIONS assembles five contemporary artists whose works are based on live art and body based practices and deal with images, stereotypes and visions of Africa today. They use various ways to determine the expectations that might exist towards African art and stage joyful games, colourful masquerades and absurd affirmations of their supposed otherness. The works which have been shot all around the globe, from the US to Korea, from Paris to Nairobi are challenging common parameters of cultural heritage, belonging and identity. Using pop visuals and video clips aesthetics, the works seems to be quite accessible on the first hand but deeply questions a globalised ''western'' gaze towards the representation of cultural belonging.
Check out this exhibition at The Arches in Glasgow UK. Studio Ang director and visual artist Muchiri Njenga will be among the five artist whose works will be exhibited.
