The Kenteverse is a multifaceted Art, Design & Music project exploring Kente’s innate power to create. I’m primarily using sounds sampled from the loom during the weaving process to generate new Kente designs and experiences.

When I started this project, I thought I was merely observing and dissecting the anatomy of Kente. I wasn’t aware of the fact that I was peering into a whole universe, The Kenteverse. Sound & Rhythm drove me here, and they’ve been my main points of contact in understanding the numerous locations within this universe. Language, History & Fashion are just some of the areas I’ve gained access to during my time here.

Pathways of Art

In 2022 I was invited by Sarah Csernay to share the Kenteverse in a current exhibition, Pathways of Art, by the Museum Rietberg in Zurich. The exhibition is focusing on the ways in which the ‘objects’ came into the collection. 

I spoke briefly about the Kenteverse and my initial interaction with Kente as well as the project. 

If you’re in Zurich you can see this exhibition until 24/MAR/24
