‘Where can I find this?’ Local markets are one of the prominent ways that people are brought together in local communities. From weekly group meetings to nattering in little hubs, community life is something that is both cherished and celebrated here. This exhibition looks at celebrating this union of people who both attend local markets in Sandwell as well as those who have based their livelihood from them. Nilupa uses weaving as a process to tell the tale of the markets because it has clear ties to community gathering and a long history of bringing people together through technique, time and workmanship.
Stories hidden in these stalls, to their owners and the history behind who they are, are all parts of what makes this body of work come together. A community is made by its people and as much as it is by its surroundings.
Nilupa Yasmin @nilupayasmin_ uses weaving as a process to bring together her own perception whilst becoming a part of these stories. Weaving has clear ties to community gathering and a long history of bringing people together through technique, time and workmanship. Brought together to tell the tale of the markets.
