Launch Event: Recaptured 2014 by Said Adrus
8 November 2014, 6pm – 8pm
Lost memories and histories are captured in the new media installation by British artist Said Adrus. At the centre of this exhibition is the forgotten contribution of South Asian soldiers during the First World War, a subject matter that Adrus has been working on over the past eight years. Coinciding with the WWI centenary, the exhibition pays homage to this lost chapter in history. Said Adrus work explores global issues about the diaspora communities and the notion of Britishness in contemporary society.
Talk: During the exhibition launch, Adrus will be joined by Amna Mallik to discuss the wider research around this project. Amna Malik is Senior Lecturer in Art History and Theory, at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. Arrive by 7pm to join the session.
