Home is pleased to be exhibiting work by Nuha Saad in our July exhibition opening on Wednesday the 19th.

“Nuha Saad has long been interested in the ornamental and the architectural, seeing her practice as an archaeology of the suburbs. Her work seeks to uncover and to highlight the slowly disappearing decorative elements of the suburbs. She is drawn to the turned wood elements of Victorian and Federation era designs, which were typically added to domestic interiors for decorative effect. Through her practice, she utilises these forms to explore the ways in which spatial features and colour can collude to construct a sense of place, or cultural identity. In this enquiry, her work also calls into question whether decoration is simply an addition, or an integral part of our built environment.”
