Visionary Awakening : Exhibition Launch Wednesday 18 September 2013, 7pm - 9pm

IHRC is delighted to host visionary photographer and artist Nasreen Shaikh Jamal al-Lail’s work at its gallery in Wembley, north west London.

Jamal al-Lail’s work has been exhibited in England and Saudi Arabia. Her main areas of interest lie in the connection between space and self-identity; for example, being a Muslim in Britain and also, being raised partly in Saudi Arabia has deeply shaped the way she perceives cultures and the dynamism inherent in their movements. Jamal Al-Lail’s focus has been on developing an understanding of how an interaction between different ‘collective memories’ has created a unique set of problems about who one is and what one can become. She attempts to weave alterity into a form which can be understood by those who find themselves amidst the confluence of ever changing, constantly evolving global artistic forms.

Jamal al-Lail is a First class graduate in Photography (BA) from the University of Westminster. Her work is being exhibited at MAPS over the summer.
