Location... Ilford

Project Proposal Aims and Realisation

My aim for this project is to express the overall location ‘Ilford’. I based my concept around Ilford is because that’s where I've been bought up and been living since my childhood. I want to show how the community in Ilford is and how they involve everyone. I want to also show the events that take place in Ilford by different cultures and how different identities represent them. I will achieve this by doing a range of research. I will visit the local Ilford library and the iconic areas of Ilford. I will also be interviewing people in Ilford to see what they have to say about Ilford itself and the people and cultures in Ilford. I want to look at the overall history of Ilford and see how it has developed or changed. I will research artists who have based their pieces on a location. By doing all this research I want to try out a range of processes and experiment with a range of materials depending on what inspired me in Ilford to use them materials. By experimenting it will help me gain ideas on what I'm thinking to make and where on the body it will sit weather it will be a piece you wear or an installation piece.

Redbridge Museum

The borough of Redbridge was created in 1956.

The Redbridge Museum displays different places, people and events which explore the parts of the history of Redbridge. 

Redbridge Museum has a great collection of costumes and products that are telling a story or some sort of memory in Redbridge for example 'A Bride's Story' A red wedding traditional suit is displayed to show the memorable moment of Tahera wedding day. The clothing still holds the smell of the strong memories. '' There was a sense of occasion when you wore them for your wedding. It was special... It's the time of your life when you feel very different.''

Listed Buildings in Ilford http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/caring/listing/listed-buildings/ 831, HIGH ROAD, GOODMAYES Grade: II Date first listed: 02-Dec-1998 This building is listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest. Shop with living accommodation above. Circa 1870 part of terrace with c1900 interior. Exterior of stock brick with stuccoed dressings, including moulded eaves cornice. Three storeys; one window. Second floor window is a double window with cambered head and pilasters with plain capitals. First floor has tripartite round-headed window with pilasters with floriate capitals. Both have later C20 inserted aluminium casements. Shopfront has pilasters with large corner brackets, fascia, c1900 leaded lights at top of shopfront and shopfront with two large panes and left side double door with rectangular fanlight above. Shop interior has fine quality tilework of c1900 with cornice of raised egg and dart motif borders and swag design with roses and dado panel with similar borders and exotic flowers, possibly honeysuckle. The most striking panels are three tiled panels (approximately 300mm wide by 1200mm tall) containing female figures in flowing robes with decorative borders. One bears a bunch of roses, another a basket and grapes and the third cymbals so they probably represent Flora, Pomona and Terpsichore. There may be a fourth panel behind a later partition not visible at time of inspection. Between the figuative panels are panels of raised tiles and stylised floral motifs. Plastered ceiling and black and white paterned Minton tiled floor. Metal bars across the ceiling for hanging meats. Possibly this shop may have originally sold fruit and vegetables as the tilework designs do not reflect the stock in trade of a butchers shop. The tilework is a rare survival. Now Aryana (Convenience Store) The exterior of the shop is in a rather sad state and the features mentioned above are not easy to see. Inside the shop is a blaze of light and colour. The Victorian tiles are mostly hidden behind display units and posters which are likely to appeal to the shops‟ clientele.

Banksy

Banksy is to be known as a British street artist. His work mostly has some sort of a political theme. It looks like that what bothers him about the world or the world leaders; he will create a stencil on walls around London or other cities. He started his career in the 90s. In the late 90s he started using stencils and his work started to be getting noticed and recognised in Bristol and London. His work often engages political themes, satirically critiquing war, capitalism, hypocrisy and greed. Banksy’s work is branded by striking images and often combined by slogans. Other than political or world issues, some of his work includes rats, apes, policemen, children and members of the royal family. He also creates installation work besides his two dimensional work. His most known and recognised installation was a live elephant painted with a Victorian wallpaper pattern.

In 2005, Banksy’s work on the West Bank barrier, between Israel and Palestine received   media attention. His work in Gaza is the artwork that interests me the most. As my theme is location, Gaza is one location that I have considered.  In total he has made 4 artworks in Gaza. One of the pieces includes a cat. Whilst Banksy was painting the cat a man walked past and told him that he doesn’t understand why he chose a cat. In answer to the man, Banksy said: I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website – but on the internet people only look at pictures of kittens. – Banksy. This statement by Banksy clearly indicates that he is upset about the fact that everyone knows what’s going on around them nut yet they chose to ignore as it’s not their personal problem.

Stephanie Ledoux

Stephanie Ledoux is a French Illustrator and a travelling artist. She creates collages of places she goes to. She said that she uses her art “to break the ice and to meet people”. Whilst she travels around she creates these diaries with her work. One very unique style of hers is that where ever she travels to she will find a material from that pace and incorporate it into her own work to represent the place. She started keeping travel journals when she was 13. She has created over 60 diaries. The layout and design of her diaries are very unique. People have said that her diaries inspire them to travel the world.

I was immediately attracted to the piece of art she creates. It is very personal and each piece tells a story. The artwork she creates is very colourful and meaningful. Stephanie uses different media such as textured paper, text, ink and many more. I incorporated her idea into my own work and started to experiment. I used Newspapers from different cities and countries and tracing paper where I started to put coffee and tea stains on them. Also I used food colourings and burned some parts of the newspaper and tracing paper. I made a portrait of my friend and I made one very personal to me as I used newspaper from Pakistan which is my background and I drew a portrait of myself on it and coloured it in with watercolours and ink  just like Stephanie Ledoux does with her portraits.

Rebellious Silence, 1994

Details

Allegiance with Wakefulness 1994

By tradition in Iran it is forbidden to bear the bottom of your feet, so writing calligraphy on your feet it’s forbidden. There are four symbolic elements recurring in this work the veil, the gun, the text and the gaze. Even with Western representation of the veil as a symbol of Muslim women’s domination, the subjects of this image looks strong and imposing. For example the confident possession of the gun, the phallic object of masculine power.

Arabic Writing & Islamic Art

It is not right to have any sort of religious calligraphy disrespected. what I mean by this is some of the words written in Arabic are taken from the holy book 'Qur'an'  and it is not right to print it out and stick it in my sketchbook as I could drop my sketchbook or place it on the floor by accidentally therefore I couldn't stick anything with Arabic into my sketch book, but I could put them on workflow.

I've been inspired by the shapes, patterns and colours used to decorate the Islamic art. From building's to prayer mats everything is so detailed and neat. Many shapes are repetitive in the design they either go smaller or enlarge.

Shirin Neshat

Shirin Neshat was born on March 26th 1957. Neshat creates photography and films which involve cultural, religious and political realities that bring out the identities of Muslim women worldwide. She is a photographer who uses her work to tell stories of the women’s in Iran. Neshat is a woman who is Iranian with a western education. She moved to New York and got married after her education. She takes photos of women and uses words and symbols to connote and present women’s roles in their society. The text that she uses on the photos is Italian text written in an effect way.

Neshat’s photos construct to give speech of the women’s in Iran. Neshat’s photos are analysed to show how the women’s in Iran are living and treated. The women’s in Iran includes the movements for women’s rights and the women’s fairness in Iran. Shirin Neshat’s Photographs and installation videos are contrasting Islam and the West, the men and women, constraints and desires, the public and the private, old and the new. In all these images there is a contrast between defence and attack. The range of imagery is kept within the cultural, religious and social codices of Islamic society.

Her work really interested me as she uses strong text to represent a person especially a female on how they feel inside or some sort of poet to represent the. She loves learning about different cultures, mostly on the women and the life they are living.

One of her photograph ‘Rebelloious Silence, 1994’ is revealing the hidden truths. She seeks to expose the unknown women in full chador (dress that you can only see face and hands). In her work she tries to explain that the chador keeps women from becominga sexual object; also the writing on her face is a Farsi poem that expresses piety. The gun represents the division between Islam and the West, and the differences between what femininity means in both cultures.

Women of Allah

Women of Allah

'Women of Allah', 1993 and 1997 was created by Neshat once she had returned from Iran after many years in Exile during and following the Islamic Revolution in 1979. The veiled, gun-bearing women alongside the black and white format in the photography suggest they had become an inspiration from newspaper clippings showing Iranian women's involvement in the Iran-Iraq War and Islamic Revolution. The hand written verses over the body are best described as an "Analogue to the spoken word"; which quote feminist poets and writers such as Farugh Farrukhzad and Tahira Saffarzada. The women's hand gestures suggest prayer, and popular prayers inscribed on the edge of her white veil reading: "Give a hand so I can hold a hand"

Women of Allah

In Neshat’s work they are women who are bought to avoid issues of sexuality and desire. ‘Neshat not only tries to remember her past, but provokes her audience into furthering the discussion.’ Neshat uses black and red ink in her portraits. In this image Neshat uses her traditional black and white photography but spot colours the rose. I think Neshat does this to show how women in Iran might not be well treated but are still alive. The black veil is like a uniform that has transformed the feminine body into a warrior and even heroic. Also Neshat is trying to communicate what she has experienced in life.
