Two artists from vastly different parts of the world, Jamaica and Kenya, investigate identity.

Despite the vast distance between them, they ironically share much in common.

The influence of colonialism and the repercussions of colonial history have impacted how these artists perceive themselves today, as well as how they place themselves in proximity to the "other."

Curated by Claire Breukel, the exhibition features a collaborative installation where the artists will meet for the first time and respond to each other's work.
