About

Perpetual Movement considers the relationship between migration and memory in connection to the Arab world and its diaspora. How does your memory of a place change once you have left? What happens if you are ethnically associated with a location but have never even been there? Memories can be inherited, they can alter from generation to generation, becoming fragmented, creating gaps that need to be filled. They can also change with time. Some can be buried, while others can be idealised.


The exhibition comprises the work of 7 women artists with roots in the Arab region: Yumna Al-Arashi (Yemen/Egypt – UK), Nada Elkalaawy (Egypt – UK), Shaikha Fahad Al Ketbi (UAE), Thana Faroq (Yemen – Netherlands), Araz Farra (Syria/Armenia – UK), Nadia Gohar (Egypt – Canada) and Najd AlTaher (Kuwait).
