Yara El-Sherbini
1978, United Kingdom

The works Yara El-Sherbini presents in her first solo exhibition rely heavily on humour, and are far from politically correct.
With the characteristic defiance of youth, Yara’s artistic discourse homes in on so called “sensitive issues”, and invites the viewer to temporarily suspend disengagement.
