"Bwagamoyo" charts a voyage from colonial Zanzibar to Kenya’s 2008 post-election violence, by way of the male body. Drawing on the history of the artist's father, born and raised in Zanzibar, and Patel's personal involvement with Kenya’s post-election crisis, "Bwagamoyo" shows how the architecture of Empire is codified on the bodies of men. How the stories of our bodies are intimately mirrored in the larger Body Politic, and our national histories. "Bwagamoyo" is the second work in Patel's four-part opus, <i>Migritude</i>.
