GRACE NDITIRY-UK BORN KENYAN ARTIST!










Truly an artist..I'm gonna admit that I don't understand everything about her work but I find it very interesting and it's message important.


So there she is...Grace was born and grew up in London where she resides now.

She uses videos, advertisements 2 showcase her work and socio-political mesage.


Grace was also awarded the UK Studio Award 2004-2006 at Delfina Studios in London.


This is what she had to say about her work during an interview w/curator Ian White:


"Ithink of it instead of trying to talk about certain issues that bother me whether political or socio-political, but trying to transcend the normal dogmatic way of talking about them, putting different layers. Through the dance – the dance is a way of talking, expressing things – but also with the text, because some of the text you are used to as well, because we’ve become so used to that kind of statistical information, especially about Africa and stuff like that. But when you put it all together then so many different, new meanings come to it. And through the music, like in Absolute Native it’s quite hypnotic, so then you start to see different ways of joining. The whole show at Delfina is always changing, because if you go to one piece then you’ll see it once and you’ll go, “Okay now I get that bit”. But then if you see it again, you’ll see something else, because of the way I’ve made it. Even I start seeing new things, and that’s why I said that I also like to see the work in the space to understand it again."


Some heavy stuff hun,
