Rituals and Spells


Silvias Mothers Gallery Cromwell Place, London

Rituals and Spells explores the idea of diaspora and finding non-conforming mechanisms of safety, remembering and belonging - a large part of the immigrant experience.

Yousefzada the artist has reconstructed work created by his mother in the form of embroidery and other objects, and reconfigured them into protective talismans. Through his ritual of making he seeks to summon up different strengths, gods and worlds to face otherness.
