The Armory Show | 2016 | Solo
New York, USA
03.03.16 – 06.03.16
SMAC Gallery (Booth 630, Pier 94) presents a new series of C-Stunners and photographs by Cyrus Kabiru titled Njia Ya Maisha at The Armory Show in New York, from 3 – 6 March 2016.
Njia Ya Maisha is Swahili for “way(s) of life”, and the pieces in this series chronicle the dynamic flows of commodity culture: both the artifacts and brands, and their shifting symbolic value.
Conradie and Norman (2016) writes:
Concentrated on a visual and DIY aesthetic, evocative of old sci-fi films, Kabiru’s work aims to shift conventional perspectives or prescribed visions of the world.
