Nilupa Yasmin | Where Can I Find This?
3 September- 9 October 2019
Nilupa Yasmin uses weaving as a process to bring together her own perception whilst becoming a part of these stories. Weaving has clear ties to community gathering and a long history of bringing people together through technique, time and workmanship. Brought together to tell the tales of the market.
This piece was originally commissioned by Multistory, as part of Blast Photo Festival in West Bromwich. During the course of this exhibition, Yasmin will be working with Brixton market to create a new piece of work. Spending time with the market traders, residents and customers the work will be made in the gallery, with visitors able to meet her and engage in her process. This residency is hosted in collaboration with Grain Photography Hub.
Nilupa Yasmin’s work is primarily lens based, while taking a keen interest in the notion of culture, self-identity and anthropology. Combined with her love for handcraft and photographic explorations, the artist repeatedly draws upon her own South Asian culture and heritage. The practice of weaving, passed down through inheritance, has become an integral exploration in the development and expression of human value. Her research examines the principles of craft in art-based practice; becoming an evident methodology shown throughout her work whilst investigating ideals and traditions that are very close to home.
As an extension of each show, we invite selected artists to be featured in the Pod. The Pod is a thinking space, that allows for the narratives of our current shows to be expanded.
Currently showing is a selection of work from the project ‘1500 Days of Gentrification’ by artist Ellie Laycock.

Last summer we started our Saturday Session, where we invited members to come along and share their work with each other. If you have a project you would like to get some feedback on, or if you just want to join in the conversation, please come along.
‘Critical Contemplations’ is part of a new programme at Photofusion. The series aims to discuss interesting and current issues in contemporary photography practice, challenge preconceptions and provide a platform for different artists to hear other perspectives. For each event, we have invited speakers who will talk about their practice, then open up the floor through an adaptation of the Long Table format.
Each event will be recorded and available to listen again via a series of podcasts.
