Making Visible Women’s Work
Nilupa Yasmin’s residency will explore female identity and the experience of older women through the use of craft and photography.
Nilupa Yasmin graduated from Coventry University in 2017 with a First Class Hons Photography Degree and lives in Birmingham. Her work is primarily lens based, while taking a keen interest in the notion of culture, self-identity and gender politics. Combined with her love for handcraft and photographic explorations, the artist repeatedly draws upon her own South Asian culture and heritage and position as a British Bangladeshi Muslim woman. The artist explores issues of under-representation through community photographic practice combined with a unique communal process of weaving, passed down through inheritance.
