GALLERY TALK | Weaving the Fabric of our Fate by Farrah Fray

Saturday, 5 May 2018, 14:30 - 16:00

Young Libyan writer Farrah Fray will be speaking about poetry, memory and contested personal history, providing a unique expository take on the idea of documenting and mapping personal and collective journeys.
Informed by her background in translation and linguistics, Fray invites the audience to view Libya as a multi-modal piece of literature which, similar to the weaving of a cloth, carries routes positioned in different angles to each other and patterns repeated over the course of time, using all pieces of thread to reach a shared destination.
A published poet (The Scent of My Skin: From Libya, London and Every World I Live In), Fray’s work navigates and explores culture, feminism, displacement and identity. She is influenced by both London and Libya as well as other travels and the people she meets. Through her poems and memoirs, she hopes to expand the understanding and representation of Middle Eastern women today. Most recently, she is working on a collaborative series with different artists for Khabar Keslan, confronting Libya’s fragmented history and identity. Khabar Keslan is an online review featuring art and critique from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa.

PERFORMANCE
Anissa Lalahoum: What is Abstract Calligraphy?

Friday, 15th December 2017 | 18:00 — 20:00

Celebrating Arabic Language Day with Algerian-French artist Anissa Lalahoum, who will deliver a unique Abstract Calligraphy performance.
Lalahoum artistic approach evolves around spirituality, perception, and the discovery of the true Self. In perpetual search for personal expression through gesture, her compositions play on the illegibility and the disappearance of the meaning in the text in favor of emotions. Her calligraphy is abstract, yet clear of sense.
This unmissable performance will be followed by an artist Q&A.

Tickets £3 online or £5 at the door
