Grenfell Tower Victim Khadija Saye’s Work on display at Tate Britain in memory of the loss

The work of talented young artist Khadija Saye, who tragically passed away in the Grenfell Tower blaze on 14 June, is being displayed at the Tate Britain. Much of the British-born artist’s work explored her Gambian heritage, with a highly personal touch that typified her photographs and prints.

The work Tate Britain is showing, ‘Sothiou’, is a silk-screen print of one of Ms Saye’s photographs from a group of works under the title Dwelling: In This Space We Breathe, which will be displayed in the Venice Biennale Diaspora Pavilion until 26 November.

Khadija Saye’s mentor, Nicola Green, has launched the Khadija Saye Memorial Fund, along with the artist Dave Lewis, and the director of PEER Ingrid Swenson. They hope to raise £50,000 www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/khadija-saye-memorial-fund . Please visit the website for more information.
