We all think we have the answer to the question What Is Home? - be it the building, town or country we live in, the people we live with or even the objects we surround ourselves with.

Welcome to the Pump House Gallery home, where the work of a group of Arabian artists with divergent concerns is presented. From gender roles to the relationships we hold with architectural and historical space, these concerns are manifested in their work through humour and a close cultural examination of the mundane and everyday. All contribute to the idea of what we consider home to be, either by challenging readily-accepted norms or confirming what we already know or believe.

Set within a quasi-domestic situation, the viewer is able to spend time with the artwork outside the constructs of ‘the gallery’. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own life experience to their interaction with works that address ideas of place, memory and history, both global and personal, identity and how it is formed.
There is no suggested resident of the Pump House Gallery home, rather each visitor should assume that role for themselves as they discover the artwork.

This exhibition is a part of the Shubbak Festival programme taking place across London from 11-26 July 2015. Founded in 2011 by the Mayor of London, Shubbak (meaning ‘window’ in Arabic) is London’s largest biennial festival of contemporary Arab culture. For more information visit www.shubbak.co.uk
