KANGA MESSAGE.... 2010/2012
This project is about East African women that use their colored
dresses as a means of transmitting messages. These messages, in
Kiswahili, in their "Kangas" (the "Kangas "
are colored fabrics into rectangles with different motifs and
designs) are a form of social communication. They are visual and
silent expressions about their feelings, beliefs and traditions.
Sometimes are proverbs and sayings, sometimes phrases of sacred
books like the Bible or the Koran. These inscriptions are the
voice of many women in a region of the African continent whose
culture, history and tradition are expressed in Kiswahili language.
