Jala Wahid makes work that touches on urgent issues in relation to identity, nationhood, diasporic living and intergenerational legacies. She considers how politics and poetic expression interweave. Wahid looks to embody this intertwining in her work by exploring its urgency, defiance, euphoria and violence to suggest ways of being that challenge fixed definitions of identity.

Conflagration is Wahid’s first institutional solo exhibition and presents a new body of work exploring the relationship between Britain and Kurdistan, through the lens of oil. The installation approaches oil as the symbolic material through which nationalism, statelessness, colonialism and Kurdish identity are explored.
