More about the artist:
Emii Alrai is a first generation British Iraqi artist working and living in Leeds. Alrai's sculptural practice is concerned with middle eastern identity, creating monuments, as well as exploring the residue of colonisation. Emii secured her first solo show this year at GLOAM Gallery, Sheffield, and has previously exhibited at Caustic Coastal (Salford), Hutt Collective (Nottingham) as well as local Leeds spaces such as Ladybeck and The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery. Emii also co-founded and is an organiser of the artists-led crit group Nocturne.
