Sandra Suubi

Sandra Suubi (Kampala, Uganda), is a socially conscious visual art-ivist, whose multimedia physical and sonic sculptural works are a response to her observation/ study/ experience of popular visual culture and social practices, especially in her country Uganda. From her early sculptures, constructed from an assorted range of found objects – used plastic, tyres, metal, discarded boats, etc, to the most recent wearable performance installations ( Samba Gown, 2022, Kiragala 2021) made of 2nd hand clothes, plastic pipes, used jeans, used cables, and such, Suubi broaches issues that deal as much with industrialization, single-use plastic, climate change, commodity, exploitation, as with the transformative effects of the accumulation of mass-produced goods, material culture and women’s lived experiences
