Common Ground brings together artworks by four artists active in Kenya today, featuring depictions of social groups, specifically students, uniformed officers, protesters, and family. In these works, each of the artists considers the behaviour of these groups as a unit and their relationships with the physical and social spaces they inhabit.
Comprised of drawing, painting and sculpture, the exhibition highlights artworks that were created within the last decade. Among them are a large-scale drawing by Peterson Kamwathi from 2012, and a recently completed group of sculptures by Morris Foit, both of which form part of the NCAI collection. Alongside these is a significant painting by Elias Mung’ora from 2017, and a selection of artworks from an ongoing series by Paul Njihia.
