As part of Capture Photography Festival 2022 BAF presents 💚 by Sara Gulamali. green heart emojifeatures work created by Gulamali during her 2022 winter residency at BAF and reflects on the artist’s recent relocation to Vancouver. The work explores a post-colonial navigation into the hyper-visibility or invisibility of Muslim women using green screen technology. For the artist, green screens and the colour green more broadly, reference the notion of otherness and the othered body within her practice – a nomadic space that can become anything or transport you anywhere. The six photographs featured in this exhibition were all taken in and around the lower mainland signalling a shift in the artist’s perception of green as she brings her practice into this new environment and finds her voice anew.
