About this event

Whether botanical, wildlife, or human, all bodies experience the right to claim natural space their own. Yet changes in the environment and the impact of human intervention govern whose claim will take precedence.

Driftwood merges the physical flow of water into its material form to provide a visual of this interplay, an interaction that signifies resistance, compromise and conformity. The juxtaposition of the free-flowing medium seeped within the structured order of geometry conveys a further force in controlling the flow from moving entirely without purpose. The result is a binding between flow and form each playing its role in a system of larger play.

Sara Choudhrey applies a hybrid approach to art-making, utilising patterns inspired by Islamic visual culture and beyond. Combining research interests in digital technology and traditional methods of pattern-making, Sara’s artistic practice is a means to communicate theoretical and conceptual themes regarding our understanding and engagement with space, place, border and order.
