Refreshments, Art, Conversation
Drawing from topography, geography, and geometry, Mansur Nurullah creates textile art from scraps of recycled fabric in a quest to divert it from becoming landfill and to describe his sense of place and location.
"My works are deconstructions of natural and built environments that influence black spatial conditions. I consider places and objects that help construct our ideas of humanness as ecological systems to be mined. Here, I question under what conditions can un-keeping a place or thing become a means of developing a deeper understanding of our own genealogy. In my drawings, paintings, and sculptures I re-image side walks, levees, slave castles, rivers, and auction blocks into minimal schematics that are mediations on human geographic development and belonging..."- Mansur Nurullah, artists' statement
