Everyone is Lonely in Kigali is a solo exhibition of work by Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, whose practice expresses what she describes as ‘an emotional cartography’.
Presented photographs arose from a project bookmarked by two journeys to Brazil, marking a period of major emotional transformation and shifting perspective for the artist. Taken in locations as varied as Dakar, Accra, Berlin, Abidjan, Kampala, Kigali, Nairobi and Johannesburg, Everyone is Lonely in Kigali reflects a life in movement.
