Opening: 
Saturday, 11 November 2017 - 10:00am

“We are descendants of the stars. Cosmic dust is an eternal
element of the body’s cyclical decay and renewal. We are
constant process, not complete products. We are Tertullian’s
Apologeticus where ‘dead stars come to life’ and ‘everything
is refashioned out of death’.”

The eternal concepts of life, loss and hope are explored by
artist Naseem Darbey in her exhibition We Are Saved By Loss.
Using medical morphology and pathology as the basis for her
exploration, Darbey addresses her core concepts through art,
science, and philosophy and expresses them through her
signature hollow drawings. Through the impact of scale and
concept, Darbey invites the audience to evaluate and empathise
with these testing themes in her new body of work commissioned
for The National Centre for Craft & Design and funded by
Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts.
