Suspect Objects Suspect Subjects is a collection of works which question, highlight and respond to the victimising of Muslim communities in Birmingham, the UK and around the world


In a time of increased societal racism; xenophobia against migrants, attacks against Muslim people and stereotyping of those who simply appear Muslim, these views are freely expressed through media misrepresentation, hate-filled terminology, exploitative political strategies and sensationalist headlines.

The artworks reflect on this fear and racism as contemporary social factors, political currency and cultural memes that alter how people navigate reality and memory. Targeting and immersing the viewer echoes the persistent attacks which surround Muslim communities.

The use of advertising, installation, painting, sculpture, still and moving image explore the multi-faceted channels used to influence and fuel prejudice. Juxtapositions question the surreal 'validity' of suspicion and evoke humour, personal memory, and the experiences of duality and difference.
