Ninar Esber’s ‘Couleurs’

An interview with Alan Cristea Gallery director Helen Waters and artist Ninar Esber about the group show Conflicted Memory in London W1. Eight female artists from zones of conflict around the world from for example, Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Lebanon feature in this singular show. The exhibition continues until June 2013.

“Against a backdrop of nationalism, apartheid, civil war, and social and political change, Conflicted Memory also looks at

the role of the artist in areas of conflict, where artists are often amongst the few that can carve out an alternative space for reflection, imagination and discussion beyond the entrenched fault lines. ”
