British Sign Language Tour of Louise Bourgeois

Saturday 23th April - Wednesday 4th May

London-based artist Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq leads you through Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child, discussing the ideas and techniques behind the artworks.

 

The British Sign Language tour is led by Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq, a London-based artist and facilitator whose work concerns culture and deaf identity.

You’re led around the fabric and textile exhibition and introduced to topics of identity and sexuality, trauma and memory, guilt and reparation.

The tour explores general concepts as well as the materiality of the artworks, and discusses certain pieces in detail.

There’s time for questions at the end of the tour, and we encourage you to engage in dialogue with Aurangzeb-Tariq and your fellow visitors.

Aurangzeb-Tariq is a London-based artist and facilitator whose work concerns culture, deaf identity and, as a deaf woman of Pakistani heritage, the multi-faceted nature of being a ‘minority within a minority’.

Through painting and installations, Aurangzeb-Tariq creates visual representations of language and emotional expression through her use of colour and form. She has exhibited widely nationally and internationally and has featured several times on national TV.
