This photographic art exhibition explores contemporary relationships with spiritualism, reality and surrealism, through a Black British lens.

Afrosurrealism is a visual and literary movement using the otherworldly and surreal to reflect the present. Artists Hamed Maiye and Adama Jalloh explore new ways of imagining spiritual identity in photography through a Black-British lens, using Afrosurrealism as a framework.

The evocative work of these two artists focuses on contemporary relationships with spirituality and reality and particularly uses images of twins to explore the meaning of the number 2, spiritual bonds, and the mirroring of union and division, reality and surrealism.

This exhibition is intended to inspire younger artists to visualise new ways of creating and presenting their lived experience.
