Farheen Haq: Being home (opening reception)


Motherhood at home in the gallery

Victoria BC artist Farheen HaQ brings her exhibition Being Home to Kelowna’s Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art from July 15 through August 27 2016.

Being Home explores HaQ’s reflections on motherhood though a series of video installations and sculptures. The artist records herself in relation to domestic objects to expose the overlapping identities of motherhood, feminism, gender and ethnicity.

HaQ, a graduate of York University, has been exhibiting her work in solo exhibitions across Canada since 2002. Working in video, installation, performance and photography, her work investigates her South Asian-Muslim-Canadian-female identity as a social construction.

The exhibition will be celebrated at an opening reception on July 15 at 7pm at the Alternator. Please join us for refreshments and connect with other local artists and supporters to explore the work of this emerging BC artist. The event is free and open to the public. Being Home will be on show until August 27 2016.
