The Neulinge Collective consists of five artists from Taiwan, Pakistan, Srilanka and India who have come together as a group to critique the status quo with work that reflect issues of injustice we face today. There is a sense of impatience with the legacy of colonialism and as artists they not only want to engage with this conversation but also provide solutions and allow glimmers of hope through their works. Marium confronts orientalist notions of the ‘oppressed’ woman in Pakistan with her monumental figure paintings while Chudamani reflects on individual achievement of immigrants contributing to the success of Britain today. Divya’s work confronts themes of regaining a mother tongue that was denied by imperialism. Yihsin explores her own state of mind dwelling on intimacy, loneliness and vulnerability Finally, Maryam’s beautiful jewel like mixed media works are reflections of her research and experiments with textiles and their new age iterations.
