Soufiane Ababri confronts themes of homophobia and racism in his first solo UK exhibition.

Running from: Fri 28 Sep - Sat 24 Nov.

Soufiane Ababri's (b. 1985 in Tangier, Morocco) new body of work for the main gallery of [Space] aims to thwart oppressive social dynamics. His intimately drawn, erotically charged scenes are inspired from images of his family and friends, online sources and from art history. The artist highlights the influence of violence on the forms of art history and on cultural identities. Appropriating everyday moments, street scenes, press photographs and intimate acts, he explores themes of anonymous sex, gay icons, post-colonial exoticism and relationships of domination. His evocative drawings, installations and performances contribute greatly to contemporary art discourse on race and sexual identity.
