lucia nimcová

lucia nimcová's 'an african thunderstorm' project includes: "several elements such as a booklet, with an interview of a friend of mine who worked in kenya for a NGO. furthermore, collected photographs, depicting young kenyans staging themselves the way they would like to be seen. i have also transformed a well-known piece of poetry by david rubadiri–an african thunderstorm–into a stamp poem by commissioning local artisans in kenya. i want the viewer of the work to experience the use of the stamps as an important bureaucratic symbol, by means of making a stamped poem." see more here.
