Drawing inspiration from the longstanding traditions of mask-making and masquerade in the Caribbean and Nepal, Brixton-based artist Maya Gurung-Russell Campbell creates evocative landscapes that explore her dual heritage. Incorporating sound, moving image, oral history, poetry and analogue photography, her practice centres matrilineal mythologies and lived experience, whilst interrogating universal themes.
Folklore Imaginary is the artist’s first UK solo exhibition. The show and the accompanying publication are supported by UAL’s Mead Fellowship and 87 Gallery.
