Aida Wilde for Help Refugees Charity

AIDA WILDE FOR HELP REFUGEES: CHOOSE LOVE

Aida Wilde was born in Iran and arrived in the UK in the mid 1980s as a political refugee. In this striking body of work, she used banknotes from Eritrea, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan and Syria as her canvas, and worked in 'money ink' made from pulped banknotes. Sourced by curators Susan Hansen and Olly Walker, these banknotes represent some of the countries that have seen the highest numbers of people become refugees in recent years. In an immediate and intuitive response to these banknotes, Wilde has used the iconic ‘Choose Love’ slogan, gifted to charity Help Refugees by Katharine Hamnett. All proceeds from the sale of this work will go to supporting Help Refugees’ work around the world.
