About The Speaker
Darlyne Komukama is an Ugandan self-taught photographer and installation artist. She works mostly collaboratively to investigate and edify the things she cares about: femininity, blackness and connectedness. Darlyn's feminist ideals are vital to her projects and she will be found working with other women to initiate interesting projects for even more women to enjoy. Her projects include: The Salooni, a multi-media roving installation made together with three Ugandan women investigating and celebrating Black hair; Our Things, a video archive installation made with one other Ugandan woman collecting stories about similar Ugandan experiences; and Penthouse, a rage room on a rooftop in the middle of downtown Kampala where Kampalan women could safely express and manifest their rage. Her work has appeared on CNN, BBC, The Guardian, Quartz and OkayAfrica. Her work has also been shown at the Southbank Centre in London as part of the Africa Utopia Festival, Constitution Hill in Johannesburg as part of the Being Her(e) Exhibition, the Chale Wote Festival in Jamestown in Accra, the Africa Bass Cultural festival in Ouagadougou and at multiple locations in Kampala, Uganda.
