Grace Ndiritu’s art and activism is inspired by alternative communities, spirituality and lifestyles. In 2017 she initiated her live art project, The Ark, in the migrant suburbs of Paris, France. This ‘model for living off-grid in an urban setting’ brought together scientists, artists, gardeners, economists and spiritual practitioners. Other ongoing projects involving diverse groups of people in performance, meditation or protest include Healing the Museum, which seeks to re-activate the ‘sacredness’ of art spaces. Protest, an important facet of Ndiritu’s practice, plays a part in Plant Theatre for Plant People, her project for British Art Show 9. With her fashion and economic research project COVERSLUT©, Ndiritu works with refugees, migrants and young artists to create a PAY WHAT YOU CAN clothing line dedicated to class warfare.
Grace Ndiritu (born 1982, Birmingham) lives and works in Birmingham. Ndiritu studied at Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton and De Ateliers, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
