Unheard-Until-Marriage11The Deaf Cultural Centre Explorers are delighted to present the work of Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq, a British born artist from a Muslim upbringing. This provides a unique opportunity to meet the artist. Rubbena’s work explores cultural differences and tensions – drawing together western and eastern elements.

Rubbena’s recent work has been inspired by her involvement in Deaf Explorer which has enabled her to research Bollywood and Indian culture and take a fresh direction in the development of her art.

Her paintings produced during this time contain abstracted forms of hearing aids and ear moulds floating within a visually ‘noisy’ background of colours.

This new work will be presented alongside “Unheard until Marriage” 2011, an art installation dealing with the problematic nature in mainstream societies of not seeing beyond pervasive cultural stereotypes of Asian women’s culture, disability and deafness to achieve a deeper understanding of Deaf Asian women’s’ real life experience.
