Showing a few works from roots/home and one from signature print, in this beautiful exhibition curated by Vanessa Giorgo, with 7 other amazing second generation artists.
nb you need to rsvp to Vanessa (email on the flyer) to attend in Southend on 24th/25th!
I’ll post the link to the online exhibition when available.
…This exhibition will explore the complex perspectives of second-generation immigrants around their lived experiences regarding their balancing of their cultures and their oscillation between feelings of belonging to the ‘motherland/s’ and the ‘promised-land’. Do they put down roots and become assimilated in the new culture or do they carry their ancestors’ heritage and try to reproduce it – are their parents’ cultural traditions passed down on them and their descendants more often than not? Do they create new traditions in their country of birth?

My part of the Textiel Factorij project included the opportunity to spend a few weeks in India doing research into the arts and crafts techniques used during the age of textile trade between the Netherlands and India. I have been working with craftspeople in Gujarat (Mata ni Pachedi artisans, who paint textiles used in the worship of Hindu goddesses, and who also use block printing to aid their production; Block-carvers in Pethapur; Digital fabrication expertise and the FabLab in Ahmedabad CEPT University.) The theme of my project is automation.
I have recently started a blog about my project Signature Print, and I still have a lot to document!
The artwork outcome of the project will be presented at Museumfabriek (formerly Twentse Welle Museum) in Enschede, the Netherlands, in 2018.

There is a subtle sense of the liminal that unifies the works in this exhibition; they all in some way wander on the threshold of the unknown.
