Gather your spools, let your hair down for me. Gently. Here. Undo.
Fri 7 May — Sat 29 May 2021
For her new work, Gather your spools, let your hair down for me. Gently. Here. Undo., Raisa Kabir presents a moving portrait and sculpture responding to the textile geographies of labour between Kashmiri woven shawls, Paisley, Scotland, Textile Archives, and South Asian diasporic migration and displacement.
The sculptural weaving, which features in the moving portrait, acts as a consequent reminder of the colonial imposed borders and the ongoing conflict between India and Pakistan.
Part of ambi, co-curated by Jenny Brownrigg (GSA) and Sabrina Henry (CCA).
