Kira Kemper completed her undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from WITS University in 2010, and went on to receive her Masters degree with distinction from the University of Cape Town’s Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2013. She has exhibited in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Berlin as part of the Homebase Residency programme. Her main interests lie in public space in South Africa, which often culminates in site-specific sculptures and public intervention performances. By using fabric as a medium for its tactile and relational qualities, she is able to soften and satirise these symbols of colonial rule.
