“ON THE ART OF BEING ACCOMPLISHED” is an exhibition by Ania Gruca (@aniagruca), a photographer and videographer based in Paris, in association with the SALMEA (Self-Accomplishment and Local Moralities in East Africa) research project that focused on Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, and involved researchers across Europe and East Africa.

“This photo and video exhibition immerses us in the multiple facets and paths of self-accomplishment in Kenya today. It captures, visually and through personal stories, the quest for self-accomplishment as tied to questions of wealth, power, authority and respectability. It shows a variety of expressions for the art of being accomplished, from marrying and raising children to engaging in community work to investing in business, art, or politics. Being an accomplished man or woman requires navigating multiple, conflicting values and expectations situated at the intersection of ethnicity, race, class, age, generation, gender, and religion.”

“Le projet SALMEA étudie les voies et les moyens par lesquels les hommes et les femmes en Afrique de l’Est tentent – avec succès ou non – d’accumuler et de transmettre richesses, pouvoir, respectabilité et autorité. Le projet explore la relation dialectique entre formes d’accomplissement personnel et répertoires moraux en abordant quatre thèmes principaux: richesse, violence, religion et parenté. L’approche des chercheurs croise enquêtes ethnographiques, données d’archives et littérature scientifique traitant de l’autorité, de la propriété, de l’héritage et de la parenté en Afrique de l’Est.”
