River Runs Through is a new collaborative artwork led by Deaf Sudanese textile artist Omeima Mudawi-Rowlings working alongside dyslexic glass artist Miranda Ellis who is hearing and like Omeima, a BSL-user.
An artistic conversation between Omeima and Miranda, River Runs Through references and reflects their cultural identities, and their respective childhood affiliations with the River Nile and River Tamar. They will use oxides, dyes and pigment found in and influenced by the two rives to create textiles fused into glass. It unleashes layers of identity, referencing the blocks and barriers of hidden impairment and the brilliance they experience as deaf and dyslexic artists working together.
