RUYA - an exhibition by Sareh Abasi, Syeda Sadaf Anwar, Najat El Bouhali Digoug and Morwenna Kearsley

Venue: Trongate 103.

Opening Reception: Saturday 2nd March - 3-5pm.

Ruya showcases a new collection of photographs made over the last year, created during an extended series of workshops, facilitated by Morwenna Kearsley. The title is primarily a female name of Arabic origin that means vision, sight or dream.

Comprising primarily of portraiture, self-portraiture and still life, the images reflect on cultural heritage, representation and memories of home. They also document the process of discovering a photographic voice: through workshopping, experimentation, and play. Taking inspiration from photographers such as Shirin Nashat, Zanele Muholi and Vivian Maier; visiting museums and galleries and undertaking workshops in the studio and the darkroom, the group used their cameras to look at themselves and each other, as their lives progressed and changed.
