  • 7 — 29 August 2015 *on now

Mexico is a fascinating culture, full of both contrasts and tradition. The subculture Cholombianos combine these elements to create their own style - from clothing, dances and hairstyles to unqiue graphics and words. They wear white Converse sneakers and brilliantly-hued Hawaiian shirts printed with religious images (mainly, the Virgin of Guadalupe and San Judas Tadeo)
their accessories, handkerchiefs, caps, and scapulars hanging around their necks to distinguish where they belong to and who they are, which is their message to the world.

Amanda Watkins’ collection of portraits from Cholombians in Monterrey is more than the evidence of the growing violence that has stricken Mexico in recent years and the many ways youth is responding to it. It’s about cultural migration on the border cities: how it can be so rich and colourful in contrast with the poverty, marginalization, and disenchantment of an urban concrete environment.

I, Amir by Nisha Bhakoo

  • 24 November — 5 December 2015

Poet/Artist Nisha Bhakoo’s short film I, Amir explores the Freudian concept of the uncanny. It focuses on the uncanny implications of the doppelgänger, new technology and poetry, as well as exploring repression, creativity, and the performative nature of gender identity. Nisha Bhakoo experiments with rhythm and language in her poetry to create moods and atmospheres that are often difficult to articulate. Her poem Feathers plays a central role in creating an uncanny atmosphere in I, Amir.

The line between fantasy and reality is disturbed by the concept of the uncanny. It estranges every day objects and routines from their usual contexts to make them strangely unfamiliar. The fear of having a double is also bound up in the uncanny, as well as feelings of uncertainty regarding who one is.

I, Amir was supported by B3 Media. Nisha Bhakoo worked with BAFTA nominated Director of Photography Nick Dance, and the actor Valmike Rampersad.


David de Brito – when Sao Paulo and London Collide

This exhibition will take you on an artistic journey from the streets of Sao Paulo to the heart of London. He will be turning the gallery space at the Rich Mix into a riot of colour and characters.
