Watch: Gal Leshem Introduces ‘Looking for Rubia Tinctorum’

Utilising video, textile and print, Gal Leshem explores the role of local folklore and material culture in the creation of identity, belonging and orientation. The artist’s search for a particular red plant, Rubia Tinctorum, follows her own personal journey of migration.

Here, Leshem introduces the exhibition at Huxley-Parlour Gallery, Looking for Rubia Tinctorum, revealing how the work explores colour, history and collective memory within the construction of local identities.
