Documenting, practicing, making

Gugan Gill is an artist based in Birmingham, UK. Her work often delves into capturing the life story, attending to the relevance of narratives and histories which can so often be overlooked. A sense of domestic feminism is weaved throughout her work, aiming to amplifying marginalised voices, delving into her South Asian Diasporic identity and highlighting the importance of community.

Recently this included a poignant discovery of family archives that were waiting to be unearthed, an exciting exploration of Stirchley’s Co-operative history and community and a new publishing house.
