Andrea Stultiens presents the solo exhibition 'Ebifananyi' at the Uganda Museum. She exhibits photography collections and visual material upon which the eight publications entitled ‘Ebifananyi’ are based. The publications form the core of her PhD research project.
Ebifananyi brings aspects of the material presented in the Ebifananyi books into a dialogue with the museum display.
The noun Ebifananyi is derived from the verb Kufanana, which means “to resemble”. Ebifananyi is the Luganda word for drawings, paintings and photographs.
Stultiens thus aims to show how photographic images in Uganda are being used and questions the stereotypical imagery that is associated with Africa.
