• Grace Ndiritu, White textiles, 2005

Through the use of performance media and video, works by Grace Ndiritu touch upon such important socio-political problems as famine, civil wars or cultural fetishism. In her dangerously erotic video entitled "White Textiles", Ndiritu uses African textiles, which constitute an iconographic element on the one hand and are used by the artist as a motif of her perverse play with the clichés of the European painting tradition on the other (e.g. the fetishizing view of Matisse’s exotics).
