PRIVATE VIEW
Sunday, 28 June 2015, 11am to 5pm

Public View
Dates: Jun. 30 2015 to 22 July 2015
Time: 11am to 5pm, except Mondays and Public Holidays.

About
In her recent work, Deqa explores the conflict of identity, culture and tradition which emerges in the lives of young, urban Africans. Very much a product of the modern world, she looks back to her roots in Somalia using the architecture of the Waab, the Somali traditional home, to try to rationalize the juxtaposition of these issues in her life. The resulting works are multi layered images, in keeping with the complexities of her investigation.
