I Am Not My Father

Kaloki Nyamai (b. 1985) explores the parallels between the past and the present through richly layered multimedia works. Drawing heavily on the stories of the Kamba community narrated to him by his grandmother, Nyamai explores how history and traditions are intertwined and how this has informed the identities of people living in present day, post-colonial Kenya. Looking through his father’s eyes he mourns the absence of cultural identity and his work is an ongoing attempt to understand and reclaim traditions lost under colonial rule.
