Suubi The Eco Artist

NAKITTO SANDRA SUUBI is a Ugandan based eco artist that graduated from the School of Industrial and Fine art in 2014. She is very passionate about young people and  the power of possibility and has taken part in different art and design festivals in Uganda and internationally. Suubi works a lot with different found objects and recycled materials to convey different messages to those that experience her work. Suubi believes that if these materials stay with us, they must work for us. In the recently concluded Kampala Art Festival 2014 she along with her sibling Kalule Kagga Enock built a giant piece that was placed on one of the boda bodas. The piece , “The King Of The Road, ” made out of re-used plastic bottles and old boxes paid tribute to the Boda boss men for their contribution to the Ugandan economy. It encouraged them as well as the public to wear helmets for safety purposes.  Suubi has had the pleasure to build the backdrop for the 2013 Bayimba International Festival that represented their logo made out of recycled plastic bottles.  She took part in the Garbage Collectors Exhibition 2014 where she built a piece called ‘The Power Of Possibility’  currently exhibited at the Uganda Museaum. She had the pleasure of working with young street children during this project to share her knowledge on how to re-use these materials. Her ‘Ebiloto’ campaign saw the construction of a big pair of headphones from recycled Plastic bottles which questioned people what they were listening to, she continued with this campaign in the Netherlands late 2014 where she built a plastic Dream Lab a space for children to talk about their dreams. Suubi is currently persuing a Masters in Fine Art in Sculpture working with recycled materials at Makerere University. When she is not working on these art pieces she is performing on a stage.

Suubi together with the U  as creative team had the opportunity to teach  at Vine Christaian Academy. Here they worked with the children to create different pieces out of this recycled materials. Suubi believes that young people are Africa’s greatest resource and loves to work with them.

  • KAMPALA CONTEMPORARY ART FESTIVAL

    KING OF THE ROAD This is an installation of an enlarged motorcycle helmet that was carried on a motorcycle throughout the city for a month during the KLA ART 014 | Kampala Contemporary Art Festival. Throughout the month of October 2014, the festival showcased contemporary artists from Uganda and Uganda’s neighbouring countries to the public. KLA ART 014's theme was Unmapped; who are the unheard voices of our cities? How can we represent and celebrate the unseen urban-dweller? With the aim to unmap the boda boda man along with his helmet, this installation paid tribute to him as the king of the Ugandan road also termed by some the google maps of Uganda due to his knowledge of most of the areas within the city. Usually no one makes way for him, and he has to utilize whatever space is left on the road by the other big motor vehicles. This time one had to make way for him because he demanded it with his moving master piece. The helmet is one of the things that the Kampala City council was and still is encouraging the different boda boda men to use and so the installation not only portrayed this helmet as something cool, but a crown for this king of the road. To emphasize that they could not stay the kings of the road if they did not wear it because incase of an accident they would not be protected. WHERE: KAMPALA ARTS FESTIVAL.
