A Future Memory

Mohammed Adel
Sat 6 - Sat 27 May 2023

South East London-based artist Mohammed Adel’s exhibition is inspired by ideas of existence and remembrance.

Mohammed Adel's paintings offer a window into the personal nuances of British-Bengali identity. He pairs family albums and imagery, notions of culture and space with ambiguity, intangibility and awkwardness.

Using Adel’s home as a reference, his works bring home the tensions between the familiar and the distant, the personal and the universal. They reflect the gap that exists between identities, the difference between remembering details and trying to imagine yourself into spaces that were once a lived reality.
