GALLERYSKE is pleased to present Dear M – Faiza Hasan’s solo debut with the gallery.
The exhibition is a meditation on the nature of remembrance – the half complete, particular moments and familiar objects that constitute a personal self and history. Hasan’s embroidery and drawings render specific memorabilia, including personal items, family mementos and other objects that form the record of a fragile and particular past. These works, done in charcoal and sometimes refurbished with gold, depict family photographs that were nearly discarded, documents that no longer hold value and a talisman from her great‐grandmother.
In her work, Faiza explores the themes of home, belonging, distance, love, grief and the mundanity of daily experience. Each piece is located in a moment, as a way to bear witness to the year that was.
