- Who am I?
- who am I in this society? the 2 questions I seek to find answers to on this journey.
“I share my life with those attentive as well as the indifferent. Using sound, text, film,photography, drawings, sculpture and installation… I build these archives.”
Immy Mali lives and works in Kampala. Her work revolves around notions of presence and absence, personal memories of childhood juxtaposed with current personal and collective narratives in Uganda and abroad. In Mali’s work, memory is a tool through which she describes the social (cultural and religious), political and economic landscape of Uganda not withholding post colonial and British imperial influences in the shaping of identities. Using a variety of media including, text, video, sound, sculpture, installation, animation, her work attempts to unpack the complexities and entanglements of memory and existence in a neo/postcolonial Uganda.
