MY GRANDDAD’S CAR – Part Two of an Exchange presentation
The New Art Exchange, Nottingham
After travelling to Pakistan and Nigeria, Sayed Hasan and IAMKSO, have set the task of bringing their Granddads’ cars’ to the UK in motion.
It has been a challenging journey for both artists so far, as they attempt to park their grandfathers’ cars’ side by side; in a symbolic act of great personal importance, which expresses their feelings towards the complex issues of identity and cultural inheritance.
They have come to understand however, that outcomes are hard to predict while still in the process of the experience. Will the cars make it to the UK? And what will the future hold for them upon their arrival? In the second part of their New Art Exchange talk series they will discuss their on-going project in an upfront discussion and video presentation.

MY GRANDDAD’S CAR – Part One of a Two part talk series.
The New Art Exchange, Nottingham
Sayed Hasan and IAMKSO want to bring their granddad’s cars from Pakistan and Nigeria to the U.K. and park them side by side.
Placing two objects with different historical narratives together represents a shared interest in resolving the distances between their cultural and ancestral inheritances. In empathising with each other’s desire to see and touch their granddad’s cars in their country of birth, they reflect upon the hybridized character of identity and relationships in a globalized world. As emerging artists, Sayed and IAMKSO discuss the on-going challenges involved in realising their idea in this first of a two part presentation.
