Valerie Asiimwe Amani

Valerie Asiimwe Amani is a Tanzanian visual artist and writer. Her practice interrogates the ways in which body erotics, language, place and perceived reality are used to situate (or isolate) the self within community.

Inspired by conversations had in during her Exploration of forests service user workshop, along with themes of movement and storytelling, artist Valerie Asiimwe Amani created a work, inspired by nature, mythology and the Motown dancers of the 1960’s.
