“Through the eyes of a woman also consists of a public installation that was created during a Swedish-Kenyan collaboration in Stockholm. The installation consists of nine five meter long fabrics with paitnings made by Kenyan artists Joan Otieno, Chelagat “Chela” Cherwon and Antonette Apondi, reflecting their perspectives of the world “Through the eyes of a woman”. In addition to the fabrics a furniture was created in collaboration with Swedish architect Julia Andersson.

The purpose of the installation is to take the discussion to different public spaces in Sweden and abroad. “
