Kate MacGarry has announced the representation of Grace Ndiritu.
Grace Ndiritu is a British-Kenyan artist born in 1982. Concerned with the transformation of our contemporary world, Ndiritu works across film, painting, textiles, performance and social practice. In 2012 she began creating a new body of work under the title Healing The Museum, which sets out to re-introduce non-rational healing methodologies such as shamanism to re-activate the ‘sacredness’ of art spaces. Ndiritu has an upcoming mid-career survey, Healing The Museum at S.M.A.K., Ghent in April 2023. The exhibition will include a new monographic publication published by Motto Books for the special occasion.
Ndiritu won the Jarman Film Award 2022 for her films Black Beauty and Becoming Plant. Her films have also been selected for the 72nd Berlinale (2022), BFI London Film Festival (2022) and FIDMarseille (2021).
