We are happy to inform you about the extension of Canon Griffin’s Exhibition YOUR HEART HO! LETTERS FROM THE SHUTTLE. LETTERS TO THE METROPOLIS – a photographic insight into Uganda’s streets and their slogans.
Visit the Goethe-Zentrum Kampala UGCS Building and enjoy being under the spell of the phrases, slogans and sentences!
The exhibition will be held until the 1st of April – pass by, you don’t want to miss this!
The exhibition “Your Heart Ho” by Canon R. Griffin offers a photographic insight into Ugandan streets and their slogans. In his exhibition, Canon Griffin picks up these phrases, slogans and sentences and brings it forth through photography to an art seeking audience – if it’s spoken word from the bumper-sticker artist or the lamentation of the taxi owner.
By compiling these, he brings together a pleathora of mindsets expressed on the road in a compelling photo exhibition that informs, delights, and disturbs. This enables a dialogue on a major and accessible cultural medium that contains much more information about the Uganda social consciousness than is easily assumed!
Rumanzi Canons exhibition aims to ultimately increase the knowledge and understanding of each other in this time and space we all are sharing.
“These short phrases or one word hammer-downs, slogans, … sentences … bible verses … and cryptic ones too, they are formed from diverse cultural backgrounds that lie close to the maker’s desire to speake to everybody on the road! Like You and I.”
(Canon R. Griffin)
