Aliyah Hussain is a multi disciplinary artist whose work crosses the intersection with contemporary art and craft as her work ranges from sound installation to contemporary jewellery design.
Based at Islington Mill studios in Salford where she is part of the Engine House collective, a shared mixed use studio space along with 10 other artists/designers.
This shop is set up as an outlet for affordable artworks as a way to support her practice as an alternative model to traditional gallery support. Here you will find small original works including drawings, collage and ceramic sculptures, as well as limited edition risograph prints all made/printed by Aliyah.
Aliyah Hussain’s practice approaches themes found within feminist science fiction literature, in particular the possibilities of co-sharing space in domestic or social settings. She works with abstract forms and uses these to construct narratives in order to explore different modes of communication and miscommunication. With a background in performance and an interest in process and material, her work moves across sound, ceramic sculpture, drawing and collage.
