Alinah Azadeh Artist Talk


A new installation by artist Alinah Azadeh and a collective of young people from Brent, Barnet and Ealing who share an Islamic heritage. The installation explores the ‘unseen' inner self through non-figurative portraiture. British-Iranian artist, Azadeh, has worked extensively with textiles, objects and texts to communicate individual narratives within her large-scale installation work. This show at the National Portrait Gallery uses objects wrapped in cloth, texts written or spoken by the collective, colour and mirroring as a means of portraying aspects of the inner self. The exhibition is the second of a three-year project at the Gallery made possible through funding from John Lyon's Charity. There will be an Artist's Talk on Thurs Dec 9th at 7.30pm (free)
