‘Nymphaeceae’ is Shah’s most recent work and is a collection of portraits of women with Asian, African and Arab heritage living in Scotland. The title refers to flowering water plants, which are rooted in soil and water and which bloom above the water’s surface. Shah uses this notion, to explore the constant transitional states of her subjects, who float in between their two cultures, one, which they are rooted in, and one, which they inhabit.
Arpita will give a short-guided talk on her work on Saturday 20th October at 3pm.
