An exhibition combining paintings, drawings and new sculptural works.
Hayv Kahraman’s solo exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion will be the artist’s first in a UK public gallery. Her work explores her experience of living between Western and Middle Eastern cultures: having fled Iraq with her family aged 11 during the first Gulf War as part of the Kurdish mass exodus, the artist migrated to Europe and now lives in the USA.
A female figure recurs in her work, representing shared histories between women – particularly women of colour – and building on personal histories of migration.
