Talk, talk, that's all you can do, with Mounira Al Solh

Open from 14 December
Private view Thursday, 15 December, 6-8pm

waterside contemporaryis pleased to presentTalk, talk, that's all you can do, with Mounira Al Solh, Oreet Ashery, Ivn Argote, Nick Hornby, Nria Gell, Nicoline van Harskamp, and Marianna Christofides.

TheMultilingual Parrotis a character in a series of anecdotes and semi-fictions IWant to Be a PartybyMounira Al Solh. The valuable bird, conversant in no fever than seven languages, was put up for sale by the artist's uncle in 1958, to help the family survive through the tensions which rocked Lebanon in the 1950s and '60s. Al Solh uses a collection of paraphernalia - heirlooms, cars, musical instruments - to gather subjective memories of a familial histories and the intertwined political events.

Al Solh's work, using video, painting, embroidery and performative gestures, brings together biography and history: the individual's experience becomes a key to speculating on wider social realities. An inherent tension plays itself out with humour, visible vulnerability, and self-knowing irony - an approach which allows the artist to take on complex and delicate issues such as nationalism or gender, putting herself, her friends and family directly on the line.

Coming in January - Pop Japan: An Exhibition by Sonoko Obuchi

Share

Category:

Sonoko Obuchi has been living in London for the last 16 years. During that time many things have happened. She studied, graduated, worked, got married, had children. She witnessed the 7/7 London bombings, the 2012 Olympics, the Brexit vote and, most significantly, the arrival of proper Tonkotsu Ramen noodle restaurants from her home town Hakata!

Given her Japanese background, her life established in London and the turmoil of recent times Sonoko finds herself in the grip of an identity crisis. You the viewer can join her on an emotional trip as she searches for an understanding of who she has become and what it means to live as a Japanese artist in this marvellous cosmopolitan city, London.

Pop means popular culture & Pop Art in general. But when Sonoko entitled her exhibition "Pop Japan", it felt like a bubble of Japanese-ness bursting and a new energy began pouring forth.

She wants to express this feeling through her speciality: Manga graphics, photography, 3D work and film.

Sonoko is very excited to show her latest collection in the Dugdale Centre, a cultural centre for the artistic community in Enfield and all London.
