Manchester-based artist and writer Qasim Riza Shaheen is presenting a new exhibition of his work at Cornerhouse from September. Entitled Autoportraits in Love-Like Conditions, the collection aims to capture silent tales of love and the connections between people. It focuses on the time Shaheen spent travelling in South East Asia in the past year. This large installation will take up both galleries 1 and 2, and will be mixed-media, including performance, film, photography, audio and drawings. Misplaced Memoirs, the performance element, use autobiographical and confessional stories to explore the notion of unrequited love. The mixed installation Between Refrains, meanwhile, is based on a dialogue between Shaheen and his father. Imagery, voices and music will accompany his father’s paintings and writings to reveal the narrative of the pair’s relationship.

Sat 6 Sep – Sun 2 Nov, Cornerhouse, 70 Oxford Road, M1 5NH, Tue – Sat 12pm – 8pm, Sun 12pm – 6pm, Closed Mon, FREE,
