Meaning ‘thread’ in Arabic, Kheit presents three artworks created in response to the Arab Hall at Leighton House by award-wining textile artist, Nour Hage.
Nour Hage: Kheit خيط (28 April - 16 July 2023), on display in the historic Drawing Room at Leighton House, is an exhibition and event series in collaboration with The Arab British Centre. Meaning ‘thread’ in Arabic, Kheit presents three artworks created in response to the tiles in the Arab Hall and staircase hall. An award-wining textile artist, Nour has also researched the museum’s collection of antique textiles, featuring Syrian clothing, Ottoman hangings and runners, and Iranian carpets. During Leighton’s lifetime textiles, in particular from the Middle East and North Africa, were a prominent decorative feature in his house, and over the last two years the museum has acquired and displayed significant pieces to recreate the original interiors.
