Sara Moustafa uses the language of colour characteristically through material investigations. External space is referenced through a visual archive in the medium of photography and reflected in a process of material studies. Strange Familiarity, the work displayed at Six Foot Gallery, is a black and yellow colour study which aims to subtly challenge the viewer. This investigation immediately refers to segregation systems of public space, specifically yellow lines on the road and hazard tapes forming barriers. Moustafa highlights societal divisions by comparing the fragility of colour with dominant industrial materials. Her practice is informed by the thriving flux of construction sites bordering common traffic apparatus with colour co-ordinated boundaries.
