Guardian Good University Guide banner

Lubaina Himid, the 2017 Turner Prize Winner, met with Fine Art student Ivy Kalungi and alumni Amber Akaunu and Fauziya Johnson.

The artist shared her thoughts on the trio’s artwork and discussed the possibility of working on future archival projects together.

Ivy is a Ugandan and Northern Irish artist working in sculpture and installation. She has curated exhibitions, been commissioned by SoundCity, and was selected for the Liverpool Independents Biennial last year.

The promising artist recently showed work as part of an exhibition at Output gallery, curated by Amber Akaunu and Fauziya Johnson.

Amber and Fauziya are the founders of 'Root-ed Zine', and recent awardees of the Liverpool Hope University/FACT residency and production prize.

ROOT-ed (Revolution of our time) is a self-published zine, and social platform, that aims to promote, support and inspire creative people of colour within the North West of England. The zine was founded by artists Amber Akaunu and Fauziya Johnson during their final year at university, where they both studied Fine Art.
