Naseem Darbey: We Are Saved By Loss






“We are descendants of the stars. Cosmic dust is an eternal element of the body’s cyclical decay and renewal. We are constant process, not complete products. We are Tertullian’s Apologeticus where ‘dead stars come to life’ and ‘everything is refashioned out of death’.”
The eternal concepts of life, loss and hope are explored by artist Naseem Darbey in her exhibition We Are Saved By Loss. Using medical morphology and pathology as the basis for her exploration, Darbey addresses her core concepts through art, science, and philosophy and expresses them through her signature hollow drawings. Through the impact of scale and concept, Darbey invites the audience to evaluate and empathise with these testing themes in her new body of work commissioned for The National Centre for Craft & Design and funded by Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts.
