Emii Alrai: Tutelaries

Vitrine, London

09 Jul 201915 Sep 2019

Tutelaries” is the first London solo exhibition of Leeds-based, British-Iraqi artist Emii Alrai. Alrai’s practice is informed by inherited nostalgia, historical identity, and post-colonial museum practices. Through sculpture and installation, Alrai weaves together narrative from oral histories and ancient mythologies of the Middle East by forging artifacts and visualizing residues of cultural collisions.
