We Need Prayers: This One Went to Market

The Nest Collective

Kenya 2017, 5 minutes

We need Prayers is a series of short videos produced by the multidisciplinary artists group The Nest Collective. The series is dedicated to the city of Nairobi and highlights the dysfunctions that many of its citizens encounter on a daily basis, including hustling artists, millennials vlogging about 21st century dating, and the people who need the services of civil servants. In This One Went to Market, directed by Jim Chuchu, a young Kenyan visual artist comes up with a sly plan to take over the art world abroad. The work commissioned by Performa Festival in New York stars Kenyan singer, songwriter, actress, and radio and reality TV personality Patricia Kihoro.
