About

Cardiff based artist, writer and independent curator Sadia Pineda Hameed (b. London 1995) was invited to show alongside Undo Things Done by Sean Edwards. Both artists address ideas of inheritance in their work, particularly the stories that are passed down within families, especially from mothers, and the childhood memories and experiences that shape the present. 

Pineda Hameed works in film, installation, text and performance to explore collective and inherited trauma. She is interested in the ways that dreaming, telepathic communion and the passing on of secrets might act as forms of resistance and as anti-colonial strategies. 

Her most recently exhibited film, tiny bubbles in the wine (2019) is an evocative collaged film that relays the artist's mother's previously untold experiences of migrating from the Philippines to the UK. Pineda Hameed playfully creates intuitive links between a mother’s story, Filipino traditions of oral history and Filipino artist David Medalla’s kinetic sculpture Cloud Canyons. 

At Bluecoat Pineda Hameed presents a new film that also focuses on matrilineal storytelling entitled The Song of My Life (2020). The film knowingly parodies a popular karaoke style video with the text appearing as lyrics for a duet. One part will be voiced by the artist while the other voice will be absent. The Song of My Life follows many of the same themes of tiny bubbles. These include the difficulty of telling stories about familial trauma as well as how collectivised experiences and memories pass spoken and unspoken between parent and child; or here between mother and daughter.
