SOLD “105 Ways You Are Worth More To Me Like This" / “small places, close to home”
This is Khadija Saye (1992 –2017) Gambian-British photographer. The portrait was made by hand cutting 105 love heart shapes from a genuine Bank of England issue £50 note.
In 2017 Saye’s series of photographs entitled “Dwellings: in this space we breathe”, was exhibited in the Diaspora Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
She lived with her mother, on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower in London. Both died in the Grenfell Tower fire on 14 June 2017.
The alternative title of this work quotes Eleanor Roosevelt’s 1958 speech at the United Nations called ‘Where Do Human Rights Begin?’. The piece responds to Article 3: “We all have the right to life, and to live in freedom and safety.” Due to a complex combination of social, economic and political factors Khadija and her mother were denied this right when their home became a place of danger, imprisonment and death. I hope for a world where, for all people, places of domestic dwelling are places of protection, spaces where we breathe. I hope for a world where our most basic human rights can be met in those “small places, close to home”.
