“you’ve probably seen my art on someone else’s account”
Lawrence Alkin Gallery: 8 June - 22 June 2018
Private View and Press Review: Thursday 7 June 6-9pm
Artist Sarah Bahbah, announces today ‘Splash’ a solo exhibition at Lawrence Alkin Gallery, London opening June 7, 2018.
Bahbah’s first solo exhibition in London will host a collection of her most viral raw storytelling visuals, depicted as a series of cinematic stills illustrating themes of love, heart break, and coming of age with her particular brand of feminine ennui.
Australian-born, Palestinian raised, Los Angeles-based Bahbah is celebrated for her raw and explicit exploration of the intimate psyche of the female millennial generation through photography and written dialogue.
Straight off the major success of solo exhibitions in Art Basel Miami, Los Angeles and New York with tens of thousands in attendance, Bahbah is bringing her show to London, solidifying her spot as one of the most influential independent visual artist of our time. In her latest collection, Bahbah captures the familiarity of what it’s like to have high intensity emotions and insecure attachments in relationships. Emotions stimulated from having a vast ambivalence between wanting to be loved, fear of being loved and of wanting intimacy but wanting isolation, all the same.
