Am I My Brother’s Keeper?Kate DaudyAm I My Brother's Keeper? is a project by British artist Kate Daudy, who has transformed a largeUNHCR tent; previously home to a Syrian refugee family in Jordan’s Za’atari camp into a participatoryart installation focussing on the concepts of home and identity.During the year and a half she spent researching the project, Daudy visited refugee camps in Jordan.There and across Europe and in the UK, she talked with refugees, activists, volunteers, war-wounded,doctors, diplomats and representatives of aid organisations from nearly 60 nations. As well as theeffects of war, Daudy noted the effects of climate change on populations forced out of their homes bydrought, flood and other natural disasters.The courage and dignity of the people she met struck her deeply. The positive core human qualitiesshe encountered, through and alongside the stories of loss and trauma, have became the overridingmessage of the tent: we are all connected, our life is what our thoughts and deeds make it.In Za’atari Daudy was inspired by refugees who with great grace after so much trauma and loss,planted flowers and bushes around their shelters in the arid camp environment. She commissionedladies in Syria to make crochet work with which to create the tree and hollyhock bushes for her tent,and they were carried out of Syria by an elaborate network of people. Thus the tent is inscribed withwork and words literally of the refugees themselves. An expression of the refugees craft and creativity,the reimagined tent – sometimes a symbol of displacement – is now a symbol of resilience and hope.For more information, please contact Myriam Blundell: myriam@maestroarts.com 44 20 3637 2789gallery@maestroarts.com

Kate DaudyVisual Artist, SculptorBorn in 1970, Kate Daudy is a British artist recognised for her work exploring the limits of language andfor her sculpture/text crossovers. Known for her written interventions in public/private spaces Daudyworks with poetry, expressing her search for meaning and drawing on the ancient Chinese tradition ofinscribing poetry or words on objects, to produce a contemporary art form for the modern era. Multidimensional works resulting from her interactions can be seen across Europe, China, America and theMiddle East. She has recently returned from New York, where she wrote on buildings with the supportof the UNHCR to raise awareness for the plight of refugees. Collaborators have included, RufusWainwright, Bjork and Yann Toma.Driven by an insatiable curiosity about language and its creative potentials, her experiments have ledher into collaborative dialogue with an array of artistic forms and disciplines. Kate studied Chinese atOxford and speaks 7 languages. Her technique involves composing or carefully choosing poetry thatreflects or contrasts with the nature of the object in question. The letters that form these poems arethen cut from felt fabric and applied in differing techniques, depending on the object.A recent project has been the creation of a 500 hectare psychological landscape at the YorkshireSculpture Park in the UK. She created installations, sculpture and performance pieces as well as writteninterventions on tree stumps, gates, stonewalls, staircases and bus stops.Daudy created an intervention using a standard tent, 6m x 4m, issued and used in Zaatari, one of thebiggest refugee camps in Jordan. She collected messages from refugees in the Middle East and in theUK and embroidered their words and thoughts on the tent which was given to her by UNHCR. Thefocus for her work is their sense of identity as refugees, their sense of loss and home. During herresearch she met with doctors, aid workers and nearly 500 refugees from Kosovo, Syria, Sudan,Somalia, Afghanistan, Palestine and other countries. The tent will tour to raise awareness for the plightof refugees and the work of the UNHCR and other agencies. It has been invited to the Reina SofiaMuseum in Madrid and the headquarters of the UN in New York in 2017/2018.www.maestroarts.comFor more information, please contact Myriam Blundell: myriam@maestroarts.com 44 20 3637 2789gallery@maestroarts.com
