Joy Labinjo's paintings draw on her British-Nigerian heritage and examine the complex relationship between identity, race and culture.

In Belonging, Labinjo invites the viewer to step into large-scale canvases saturated with colours, patterns and people, reconfigured from her family photograph albums. She simultaneously connects with personal histories and uproots them, creating a new space of multiple histories and representations.

The exhibition will also feature a reading room, supported by Iniva's (Institute for International Visual Arts) Stuart Hall Library. Iniva's Library Manager has provided research support, book lists and exhibition copies of archival journal material for visitors to further explore the themes of the exhibition.

Labinjo is the recent recipient of one of the most prestigious graduate art prizes in the UK, the Woon Foundation Prize, jointly hosted by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Northumbria University.
