Kira Kemper

born 1988 in Johannesburg, South Africa, currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa


I am currently enrolled in a Phd project at WITS University in Fine Arts through the WITS City Institute (an interdisciplinary research space exploring architecture and urbanism in Johannesburg). I am using my creative practice as research into various public spaces in the CBD, exploring public art practices as failure, and the creative potential of failure in this context. I make public interventions, often involving sewing sculptural objects and costumes, which reveal, through their failure, the reality of these spaces and of the art.
