Jackie Karuti is an artist based in Nairobi, Kenya. Her practice employs the working ways of How Clouds Are Formed which is a method that offers multiple angles of entry and a way to produce a site where something emerges. It assembles objects, spare parts and movements across different locations and offers a reading of geographic and social climates through weather & whether instruments in correspondence with the Machine, Maps, Blueprints & Library Card as tools and collaborators. Karuti was the recipient of the Henrike Grohs Award and the Follow Fluxus-After Fluxus scholarship in 2020 & 2021 respectively. Other projects that respond to her practice include the library project; In The Case of Books and the online workspace, I’ve been working on some MAGIC.
