Nine photographic prints by the late artist Khadija Saye have been installed on the streets of London—a mile from the site of the Grenfell Tower fire, which took Saye’s life in 2017. Saye’s work is part of “Breath is Invisible,” a new public art project that addresses issues of social inequality and injustice.
Saye’s works often explored her Gambian British identity and traditional Gambian spiritual practices. Her installation coincides with the launch of the Khadija Saye IntoArts Programme, which will support young artists in the UK.
