Immy Mali, Daddy Can I Play?!, 2013, mixed media installation (photos by Alex Lyons and Moses Serubiri)

Immy Mali’s work revolves around personal narratives of living in Uganda. She creates precarious installations in an attempt to digest the pain of childhood incidents and offer perspective on human resilience, representing pain as an emotion that can be touched. Mali will present Letters To My Childhood/Letters From My Childhood. This project will create a conversation between Mali and her childhood self that will investigate through text, drawing and video, the childhood moments that have inspired her past work.

Immy Mali is a multimedia artist living and working in Kampala, Uganda. Mali received her BFA in Industrial and Fine Arts from the Makerere University. Mali has participated in residencies at 32° East Ugandan Arts Trust and Seven Hills Residency at the Kampala Biennial. In 2014, Mali taught in Denmark with the Center for Culture and Development Images Youth Programme. Mali’s work has been featured at the Kampala Contemporary Arts Festival, Kabbo Ka Muwala, Lettera27, KHOJ International Artist’s Workshop in Pune Maharashtra India and the ÀSÌKÒ CCA Lagos International Art Programme.
