Hangama Amiri @ Union Pacific

25 August 2022 - 24 September 2022

Hangama Amiri employs an architectural split-screen to take us inside the story of separation. Reminiscences combines the visual vocabulary of history painting with the skills and materials of a couturier, Amiri is reminiscing on her childhood by exploring, in cloth, the photographs her parents exchanged in the years following the family’s exodus from Afghanistan.  Nine long years during which her father, in an effort to provide for and secure a path to immigration for his family, moved to Norway and then Denmark, while her mother, shuttling between refugee housing, reared Amiri and her three siblings in Tajikistan.
