Bounty Bars and Oreo Cookies by Alexandrina Hemsley and Katarzyna Perlak

A new work by Alexandrina Hemsley and Katarzyna Perlak which reflects on Alexandrina’s habits of disassociation alongside speculative and future ways of embodying multiple identities and ‘otherness’.

Both Alexandrina and Katarzyna have grown up in countries other than the UK and make work that explores the body as a political site. Both experience the effects of everyday racial/cultural assumptions placed on their female bodies. 

Private View: 3 February, 6pm
Exhibition: 4th-20th February 2016
Lower Café Gallery, Rich Mix, 35 - 47 Bethnal Green Road, E1 6LA, London
