From large-scale textile works to prints and drawings, Osman Yousefzada’s work engages with the representation, rupture and reimagining of the working class migration experience.
This solo exhibition of work by the British-born South Asian artist features brand new artworks on public display for the first time – including a new series of works on paper.
The prints are partly inspired by characters in the Falnama, book of omens used by fortune tellers in Iran, India and Turkey during the 16th and 17th centuries. People seeking insight into the future would turn to a page of the Falnama at random, and interpret the text and colourful drawings to predict their future. Yousefzada creates these prints as talismans or magical objects that protect or heal and work as guardians of the immigrant experience.More info
