Abu Jafar ARBS
Brit my sweet lady, 1995
Jafar started this work while he was at Brockhall Village, Lancashire in 1995 then gradually he worked on it for almost six years and finished the work at the end of 2001 at his Dockland studio. It was the idea of English language and its world wide expansion through history like a mother and child, never ending human continuity. It is a map of Great Britain and that map slowly turns as a relaxing lady behind the net of knowledge. It was a vision of an island to look out and see around and give birth to a language and a culture wherever they go.
