Cyrus Kabiru

C–STUNNERS

Cyrus Kabiru is best known for refashioning waste and recycled materials into various forms as a humorous critique of contemporary living withi n Kenya. In his ongoing project, C-Stunners, Kabiru creates and wears artistic bifocals using metal scraps and used objects. Kabiru then has himself photographed as he poses with the makeshift sunglasses. The work sits between fashion, design, performance, and photography in a comment on self- representation through commodity objects. According to Kabiru, the projects captures the sensibility and attitude of the youth generation in Nairobi, where they portray culture bling, the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the people, and the transformability of the everyday.
