Letters to You - Kiara Mohamed
Kiara’s letters are available from Tangent Projects during gallery hours.
Letters to You are hand written wax letters written by Kiara Mohamed. This project is about sending love, human appreciation and kindness out to the world. In a world that is trying to divide us, it is important more than ever than we show empathy, that we reach other to one another and love anonymously. These letters are physical manifestation of these ideas.
Housing Kiara Mohamed’s Letters to You is a continuation of the exhibition project Prototypes for a Feminist Future, a group exhibition curated by Tangent Projects earlier this year. The exhibition sought to stimulate a dialogue regarding the potential of non gendered structures and explore how to create an equitable microstructure, this would go on to develop the ideological foundation for the new Tangent Projects space.
Kiara is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toxteth, Liverpool. Her work focuses on identity, social issues and the role art plays in our lives in addressing these issues. Her art can be created with photography, poetry, film or even drone photography to comment on post-colonial ideas and reflect on her background, feminist ideology and and the community that she lives in. She is always looking to push the envelope on the idea of race, gender, community and social responsibility.
