Waruguru’s work ranges from painting, drawing, printmaking, needlework and installation

The materiality of objects in space is at the core of her explorations, which are intimately rooted in personal identity politics, often referencing women’s practices and traditional cultural identifiers

Remixing and acts of improvisation are the central elements of the work of Agnes. Working predominantly with everyday materials, with particular attention to materials that carry connotations of familiarity and domestic life, Waruguru builds up compositions whose thrust comes from the intimate connection that these materials bare in the personal lives that yielded them. Her work makes use of repetitive, iterative acts of creation and mark making – crocheting, knitting, sewing, and embroidery – whose nature marks the passing of time. 

Waruguru is currently in based Amsterdam in the first year of her fellowship at Rijksakademie.
