Nasreen Shaikh Jamal Al Lail

Nasreen Shaikh Jamal Al Lail is a first class graduate in Photography (BA) from the University of Westminster and a recent graduate in Photographic Studies (MA) from the University of Westminster London. Her work has been exhibited in both England and Saudi Arabia. 

Jamal Al-Lail is interested in the connection between self-identity and space. Having been raised partly in Saudi Arabia, now living as a Muslim in Britain, her personal experiences have shaped the way she perceives the fluidity and dynamism of cultural identities. Her art attempts to understand how interactions between the collective memories of different cultures creates a unique set of problems for the individual – who am I and what can I become? She weaves this alterity into her artistic practice so that it may be better understood by those who find themselves amidst the confluence of our ever-changing global society.

She is also a co-founder of Variant Space, a collective of muslim, female artists.
