Emii Alrai: The High Dam at The Tetley

Emii Alrai, who worked as an engagement artist during Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019, presents her new solo exhibition,  The High Dam,  at The Tetley in Leeds. Alrai’s practice is informed by inherited nostalgia, geographical identity and post-colonial museum practices of collecting and displaying objects. Focusing on ancient mythologies from the Middle East alongside personal oral histories of Iraq, Alrai weaves together narratives by forging artefacts and visualising residues of cultural collision.

The show is on until Saturday 29 November 2020.
