Tell us about your creative process for this series of work:

The word Legacy is central to my practice as a Textile Designer. The aim of the Kente Re-coded series has always been to develop well-crafted historical documents through textiles that are beautiful in their design and experimental in their construction. My experiments reflect the ritual function of Kente, but as an evolution of the cloth emulate historical and personal observations on culture, identity and heritage.

What does this opportunity mean to you?

It is an amazing opportunity to showcase my textiles as part of the HOME’s extended family in the Gucci Circolo space.

Collective Processes is open to the public from until  21 December 2021.

“Being a modern hybrid of an art gallery and a community events space, at the heart of HOME is the aim to inspire, share and support.”
