Event Details

Mangled is a photographic study by Kois Miah that was borne in response to two seismic events – the global Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting national lockdown starting 23rd March 2020; and the second being the loss of Miah’s dear friend to cancer on the 8th April 2020.

Jobeda Ali fought to live life on her own terms, even in her last days. She is the first one from our small group of friends to pass away and it hit hard. Her friends and family all mourn and celebrate her life, remember her in our conversations and in the things we do and the events around us that she is missing from.

Using an analogue camera, slowing down from the normal working pace, these environmental portraits are a reflection of our human relationships and the connections to life and death. They are an emotional response to the national lockdown that induced and exacerbated feelings of loss, grief, isolation, anger, sorrow, and eventually optimism, hope and renewal.

The photographs will be accompanied by 12 abstract pieces of writing and poetry from Jobeda’s close friendship circle.
