October 2017 - February 2018 - Deveron Projects, Artist in Residency

Over the winter months i will be setting up camp in Huntly, a small rural market town in Scotland, applying creative research and engagement with a select group of 100 Syrian refugees.
The aim is to support their positive and sustained integration within their new community.

November 2017- Abu Dhabi Art

I will be exhibiting in this year's fair with Athr Gallery.
On display will be a new body of work titled 'Dear Mum', which uses authentic postcards sent from various countries in the Middle East, namely, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt; back to the UK over 3 decades ago.
Each postcard has been doctored to reveal a layered narrative beneath.

February 2018- Jeddah 21,39

I am very pleased to announce my participation in two shows during Jeddah 21,39 this coming February 2018. One of which will be curated by Vassilis Oikonomopoulos, assistant curator of the Tate Modern, and the other, a group show curated by Maya El-Khalil at Athr Gallery.
All three bodies of work approved and commissioned for these shows explore socio-political themes around displacement, citizenship and labour rights in Saudi Arabia.
