Zahura Hussain and Esperanza Perkins work with sculptural drawing; converting painting into 3D line using colored threads and crocheted cotton. The artists are particularly looking at the bond between the mother and child, from the protective and secure bond to that which is fraught with the loss and separation of the mother. This relationship, filtered through the Internet examines ideas of comfort and protection alongside restriction and control.


Zahura Sultana Hossain is concerned with the complexity of how we store our experiences and how they manifest themselves in our decisions prescribes who we are today. The past is never forgotten but stored only to emerge later, not always intact but fragmented. The past haunts, confuses and distorts our view of present.
