Gherdai Hassell

Gherdai Hassell is a Manchester-based, Bermuda-born multidisciplinary artist who uses mixed media techniques to thread and weave layers of history and the complexities of Caribbean heritage and identity.

In 2023, Gherdai was selected to take part in At HOME With Jerwood, a Jerwood Developing Artist Fund programme delivered by HOME.

Gherdai will use this residency to expand her artistic practice with a specific focus on sculptural and textile work, with a particular interest in post- and anti-colonial histories via the intersections of gender, nationality, race, and Afro-futurism.
