SADE ENGLISH Anticlone : The Immortal Diaspora

@THE BATHS, 80, Eastway, London E9 5JH 23RD JULY - 5TH AUGUST 2020

The Baths Gallery is proud to present an exhibition The Immortal Diaspora by multidisciplinary artist Sade English. With the exhibition, Sade English takes us into a journey through painting, garment construction, film, and soundscapes.

Sade, as a young Black & Andean woman, witnessed the premature death of her mother Marcia Byfield against the backdrop of a race war and a global pandemic; and it’s in moments of such unrest and sudden change, questions concerning identity percolate as we try to reestablish our purpose.

Sade managed to refocus her energy into relearning and making history, while pledging to rediscover her ancestry within the African Diaspora.  

Each painting embodies the inherited strength, power and dedication to overcome the loss and grief of her mother's passing, the helplessness and uncertainty of the pandemic, and the persecution and horror of the race war.

The Immortal Diaspora is an invitation to reflect on the self, it’s construction, and it’s placed in society. If we are inspired and influenced by others who are no longer present in physical form, yet they continue to live on through work, can we all, in fact, become Immortal?  

“Life follows death, death rebirths into a guided spirit, she is immortal.” - Sade English
(In Memory of Marcia Elaine Byfield)
