A day is as long as a year
Mounira Al Solh’s paintings, works on paper, embroideries and films explore migration, memory, trauma and loss. Drawing from the artist’s personal conversations and encounters with those who have been affected by conflict in Syria, Lebanon and the Middle East region, Al Solh’s works tell stories of displacement and uncertainty.
Carolina Caycedo makes work that addresses the commons, environmental justice, just energy transition and cultural and environmental biodiversity.
Bringing together sculpture, video, sound and text, Jala Wahid’s work highlights the ways in which global and interregional politics have shaped Kurdish identity.
British artist Hannah Perry works across installation, sculpture, film and printmaking. At BALTIC, Perry presents a major body of new work for the Level 4 gallery that considers labour, motherhood and class.
