A Magic Realist Afrabia – Private View

12 September '19 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

JOIN US for the private view of our upcoming exhibition ‘A Magic Realist Afrabia,’ a series of digital prints exploring ideas on multicultural identities, hybridity, and the third space, by British Sudanese artist Rayan Elnayal.

Looking at Sudanese author Tayeb Salih’s ‘Season of Migration to the North’ for inspiration, Elnayal follows main character Mustafa’s journey from Sudan to London and his struggle with his contradicting, convoluted and evolving ethnic identity in her work. Elnayal researches and translates magic realist techniques extracted from literature, art and photography into design techniques, and combines it with information obtained from the photographic essay on the Sudanese aesthetic to build a hybrid, urban, magic realist Afrabia.
