Wanja Kimani is a visual artist based in Peterborough. Through textiles and installation, her work explores memory, trauma and the uidity within social structures that are designed to care and protect, but mutate into coercive forces within society. She imposes elements of her own life into public spaces, creating a personal narrative where she is both author and character.
For her remote residency she is looking to create a series of works based on the home, displaying work in a manner that utilizes the domestic setting not just as a place for production, but also display.
