Rosa - Johan Uddoh

'Who We Are As A Couple'

Performance Script

(b.1993, Croydon) is an artist exploring an over-identification with places, objects or celebrities in British popular culture, decolonisation, and the effects of this on self-esteem.

Making work across ceramics, performance, fan-fiction and sound, she is still influenced by her architectural background, rooting stories in specific spaces and materials.



Padma Rajendran 


Dye on silk with vinyl and stitching and postcards

Women are able to hold onto cultural elements of homeland much differently than children and men, how does the immigrant woman create and sustain her stories? I consider how I can honor these stories to bring them out of hiding. I am interested in the aftereffect of migration on interior and domestic life. The role of women and interior spaces are linked. I am curious about the unseen experiences and traces of labor that are lost to time and consumption. This disintegration connects to cultural loss which accrues from migration.

Home is a tended space, where the decorative beckons prosperity to flourish. I am engaged in the symbolism of “fruitfulness” within the home and how this blessing and burden has traditionally derived from the female body. The work on fabric conjures forms that are personal translations of shrine and monument. The vulnerability and trauma of moving from one place to another gets overlooked unless it is part of one’s personal history. I merge the personal, symbolic patterns, and textile structure to communicate the quest for prosperity and homecoming.

Rachel Fallon

PIMP - Snowflakes and Bleeding Hearts Quilted

Oilcloth, print, mixed media, textile.

Fallon’s work explores themes of protection and defence in domestic and maternal realms. Her practice encompasses sculptural work in metal, textile and paper; drawing, performance and photography.

Conflicts and ambivalences within familiar territories inform the initial choice of materials and technique for each work. The methods of making are crucial to revealing new ideas and resolving thought processes intrinsic to the original starting point of the piece.

As well as an individual practice, Fallon also works in collaborative groups and collectives, both in Ireland and England. The two disparate ways of working feed into one another and are therefore equally important parts of her practice.
