Jamilah Sabur

Represented by Copperfield Gallery

Born in 1987 in St. Andrew Parish, Jamaica Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium

Metaphysics, geology, and memory are recurrent themes in the work of Jamilah Sabur. In her practice, the artist employs a distinct poetics, reframing territory and language. She explores the temporary nature of existence and our fleeting presence in it, a thread that connects us all. A new planetary literacy emerges in her work, where alternate geographies become possible as submerged histories are revealed.
