Lilian Mary Nabulime

Lilian Mary Nabulime is a senior Lecturer and former Head of the Sculpture Department in the College of Engineering, Design Art and Technology (CEDAT), Makerere University. She holds a PhD in Fine Art (Newcastle University 2007). Her PhD research was on: The role of sculptural forms as a communication tool in relation to the lives and experiences of women with HIV/AIDS in Uganda. Nabulime uses ordinary objects such as soap, sieves, cloth, mirror, metal cans, car metal parts and other found objects to embody a variety of social agendas namely disease, gender and environment. Her work attempts to not only raise awareness and promote discussion but also move the meaning of art beyond the visual. Her inspirations for sculpture are derived from nature, experience and people.
