Project Description

Sarah M Ijangolet

Sarah is a digital illustrator whose art focuses on Ugandan folktales – following or imagining their evolution as a story and how she will retell them.

During her residency, she dissected the popular tale of Kintu and Nambi, their creator Gulu and his begotten son Walumbe.

She created a new narrative for the story that gave more agency to the Nambi character and created accompanying illustrations to represent the context that she added to the story.
