SLAY QUEEN (2018) is part of Cyrus Kabiru’s collection of „eyewear“ made out of urban trash: “C-Stunners”. Mainly due to this collection, the Kenyan artist has been gaining international recognition in the past few years. Setting his heart on „giving trash a second chance“, he made it the anchor of his artistic practice. His work reminds us of our multi-layered existence and that objects can be playful and innocent that were actually born out of ecological disaster and social injustice.
