Fashion Installation 1, 2 & 3


Sandra Suubi (b. 1990, Kampala, Uganda), is a socially conscious visual activist, whose multimedia physical and sonic sculptural works are a response to her observation/ study/ experience of popular visual culture and social practices, especially in her country Uganda.

From her early sculptures, constructed from an assorted range of found objects – used plastic, tyres, metal, discarded boats, etc – to the most recent wearable performance installations ( Samba Gown, 2022, Kiragala 2021) made of 2nd hand clothes, plastic pipes, used jeans, used cables, and such, Suubi broaches issues that deal as much with industrialization, single use plastic, climate change, commodity, exploitation, as with the transformative effects of the accumulation of mass produced goods, material culture and women’s lived experiences.
