UNIT 0: SARA K AKINWALE
Oct 13 - Nov 4, 2018
"Colours and forms, threads and material, patterns and structures, all these remind us of feelings and memories. For me the material and handicraft is as important as the thought and idea. I like textile, I like drawing and I like handicraft. I have always seen myself as a painter. In my work I find ways to combine various materials and techniques, to build pictures. The images becomes a mix between the abstract and figurative. I am trying to illustrate relationships, how a body/shape/ form, an organic object can exist in a room or space, how the abstract patterns and colours can become something organic or human like, or represent the feeling in a body. The feelings I work around are belonging, solitariness and desire, as much in the material as in the idea. I keep on testing and continue asking myself, what is a painting, what is a drawing and what is a sculpture?" Sara K Akinwale, September 2018.

Fakers is an exhibition that questions if / how methods of making are gendered - what are perceived as masculine/ feminine ways of working? The show features a selection of female artists or 'grafters' who make work that requires a great deal of technical proficiency. The feminist politics foregrounded in the work presented does not reside in any ideology or concept behind each individual work, but arises through the material practice of making - the 'hard graft' and negotiation of materials.
