Remixing and acts of improvisation are the central elements of the work of Agnes Waruguru. Working predominantly with everyday materials, with particular attention to materials that carry connotations of familiarity and domestic life, Waruguru builds up compositions whose thrust comes from the intimate connection that these materials bare in the personal lives that yielded them. Her work makes use of repetitive, iterative acts of creation and mark making – crocheting, knitting, sewing, and embroidery – whose nature marks the passing of time.
