Grace Ndiritu (b. 1982, Birmingham, UK) is a British-Kenyan artist who currently resides in Brussels. In response to the lack of empathy, care and inclusion in our society, she sometimes makes a radical exit from urban life to engage with alternative and spiritual communities in different parts of the world. From her experiences and research, she distils films, exhibitions, workshops and objects that offer new forms of self-reliance and community building.
Grace Ndiritu initiated the Healing the Museum project ten years ago. Concerned with the ‘dying’ museum, she introduced non-rational methodologies – such as shamanism and group meditation – in the hope of reanimating the space, sharing it and making it ethical. Ndiritu will continue this project during her residency at S.M.A.K. By means of group sessions and research into the permanent collection, she will endeavour to grasp the museum’s spiritual history. This end result will be an exhibition project featuring both new and existing work.
