Chasing Mirrors is a season that focuses on contemporary visual art and culture inspired by connections with the greater Middle East. It offers no single unifying viewpoint but a global mix of voices and perspectives of storytellers, calligraphers, poets, artists, dancers, historians and writers.
Chasing Mirrors: My Portrait, Shape by Shape is an installation of new work reflecting on portraiture and concepts of representation and identity. British-Iraqi artist Athier Mousawi has collaborated on this participatory art project with young people from our three community partners An-Nisa, Paiwand and Tallo. Their dialogue, creative conversations and cultural exchange form this installation. This is the third year of the project and Athier follows on from artists Alinah Azadeh and Faisal Abdu’ Allah.
