The winners of this year’s 2 Genesis x Westminster Bursaries are Hazel Vint & Mengyuan Zhang. Congratulations both!

Hazel Vint – Adhi Kisumi

Adhi Kisumi looks at Kisumu Bus Station in Western Kenya as a place of trade where East meets West, not a transport hub. Its British Colonial past has left behind the English language, and Christian religion, whilst Kenya now imports its largest percentage of goods from China in the present.  She created ‘hawker boards’ to show, in condensed form, the trade influences past and present, and to contrast global branding with the local vernaculars. Adhi Kisuma means, I am going to trade.

Mengyuan Zhang – The Perfect Family

The Perfect Family looks at how our families are a safe harbour. The series looks at the family as a belief, a religion, and a support for spiritual strength.
