Agnes Waruguru (b.1994) is Kenyan artist exploring ideas of everyday life, home, personal histories, identity and the potential for creating new worlds through active material experimentation, practice and repetitions. Her works range from painting, drawing, printmaking, needlework and installation, with a wide-ranging underlying frame of reference. Waruguru’s artwork is directly related to her surroundings while drawing connections to multiple histories. Their work can be viewed as extended paintings, playing with all the senses, making the viewer aware of their body; where one is within the artworks space. Waruguru plays with scent, organic plant matter, light, water and the expansion of colour to create environments that suspend time and evoke a sense of care, slowness and waiting. Waruguru received a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, USA. Her work has been exhibited in America, France, South Africa and Kenya. She has participated in residencies in Kenya and Sydney, Australia and took part in the Saba Artists Residency in Lamu. Waruguru participated in the inaugural edition of the Stellenbosch Triennale, South Africa, in 2020. She had her first solo show ‘Small things to Consider’ at Circle art gallery in September 2020. Waruguru has been nominated for the Volkskrant Beeldende Kunst Prijs 2022 at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. She is currently competing her residency at the Rijksakademie (2021-2023), whilst living and working in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
