PESCADOR DE LETRAS CONCEPT | VIDEO | PHOTOGRAPHY Project Ebifananyi Assistant of Role Archival research, videography, teacher-assistant Location The Netherlands + Uganda Year 2014 - 2015 Description ‘Ebifananyi’ is the title of a series of eight publications by History In Progress Uganda (HIPUganda). Each book is centered around one Ugandan photo archive, exploring its narrative possibilities with images, supported by text. The noun ‘ebifananyi’ is derived from the verb ‘kufanana’, and means ‘to be similar to’. It is the Luganda word for drawings, paintings and photographs and to indicate two-dimensional likeness. I assisted Andrea Stultiens who has found a list with descriptions for illustrations. These illustrations were meant to be shown in the trilogy (written in early 1900) on the life of the three kings, but were never created. Intrigued by this document, Andrea invited Ugandan and Dutch artists to interpret and create the illustrations. As a result, the final book of this project presents the story told by Ham Mukasa via a combination of documents from the family archive and new illustrations made by various contemporary artists, which place the unknown history into today’s setting. In Uganda I made video portraits of the artists that were involved and I helped organizing an exhibition about this project.
