DADA Gallery presents Time, the Perfect Muse, a two person exhibition featuring new works by Emily Moore and Hamed Maiye. The exhibition opens to the public on 23 March with an Opening Preview on 22 March from 6pm.
Moore and Maiye come together to question one of mankind’s most intriguing concepts – time. They do this through the interrogation of the process of story-making that creates what is known as the past. They question invisibility and malleability as it relates to time, drawing a link to ancestral memory and instinctive language as they explore a range of mediums and techniques which feel both new and familiar. Through this collaborative exhibition, they aim to create imaginative work as a means of recovering suppressed histories, through an understanding of the practices of generations preceding them. Through various conversations around their practices and by drawing inspiration from literature such as the invisible man and David Hammons: Rousing the Rubble, both artists go on to question the idea of being a muse, through the lens of the influence they both have on each other in the making of works for the exhibition.
Director of DADA Gallery, Oyinkansola Dada said: “Emily and Hamed are both incredible artists, who have collaborated to create an exhibition I believe is exceptional in many ways. They have pushed boundaries in their exploration of materiality, both creating outcomes that converge at an incredible middle point whilst also staying true to their methods and practices”.
