ARTISTS in residency
15.05.2022 - 30.06.2022

Wanja Kimani was the artist selected for the Plural Artists in Residence Programme, a project by the British Council Brazil in partnership with Despina.
Wanja Kimani was born in Kenya and lives in the UK. Her work flows between performance, film, text and textiles. Driven by stories about real and imaginary people and places, she inserts herself into narratives and uses her body to explore rituals, objects and the rural landscape.
Artists in Residence is an online artist residency program in the field of art and culture that aims to develop ideas, experiment with new practices and create connections.
The other selected artists for this first edition of the programme, and their respective Brazilian partner organizations, are: Susan Thompson – Instituto Mesa (RJ), Annabel McCourt – Diversa (SP) and Jelly Cleaver – PretaHub (SP).
