Sara Shamma @ King’s College London
1 October 2019 - 22 November 2019
Sara Shamma: Modern Slavery draws attention to this pressing global issue through a new series of large-scale portraits by London-based Syrian artist.
After becoming aware of the display and sale of women and girls in slave markets in Syria and Iraq, Shamma was moved to explore and draw attention to the psychological impact of modern slavery. Through interviews with survivors of modern slavery and professionals working in the field, the artist brings a raw and unique artistic perspective to one of today’s greatest challenges. The exhibition also considers the meaning of survival, endurance and recovery from survivor’s perspectives.
