Arabella Dorman – Stateless (as part of Terrain & Conflict: Repercussions)
November 17, 2018 - January 12, 2019
Arabella’s work draws together the physical evidence of forced migration.
Portraits and images of war – especially the effects of war on civilians – currently comprise her principle focus. [Please see www.arabelladorman.com .]
Arabella’s conflict art is drawn from first-hand experience of working alongside British armed forces in Iraq (2006), Afghanistan (2009 – 2014) and, more recently, with refugees in Lesbos, Calais and Dunkirk (2015 – 2016). Arabella has recently returned from Syria where she bore witness to widespread cultural and social damage.
Arabella was listed as one of BBC’s Top 100 Women in 2014, and Salt magazine’s 100 Most Inspiring Women in 2015.
“I enjoy working closely with the UK’s high-profile institutions such as its armed forces, and the Church,” she says.
Peter Riley, Curator of the Young Gallery, adds: “We are so pleased to show Arabella’s very important and compelling work, Stateless, here in Salisbury. It could not be more timely, to raise global awareness about the plight of refugees.
“Her previous exhibition, Before the dawn – at La Galleria, London – raised more than £30,000 for charities. We, too, hope to raise financial support for refugees.”
To compliment Arabella’s work there is an exhibition of WW2 Artists
To be followed by a complementary exhibition in early 2019 – Terrain & Conflict: Recovery
