Kinsi Abdulleh - Fine Art/Craft
I make art in the community, through creative dialogue to promote cohesion and justice.
My work is about:
- Art and social justice
- Stories, histories and archives
- Women's work
- Textiles, food and identity
At its heart my work reflects the collage of diverse cultural influences in my life.
It takes from everyday conversation, objects, and personal challenges within a global sphere and expresses that experience, shares it and learns from it.
My artwork is part-object based, part performance and part-curatorial bringing together other people and practices as a part of my own. My pieces combine Arabic calligraphy and stories, objects found in archives, in daily life, with photographic imagery, text and print, audio and film.
I use both space and language.
I am drawn to women's historical involvement in arts and craft, their challenge to the limitations imposed by tradition and the market.
