Khadija Saye: The British Muslim Artist Who Died in Grenfell Fire

This is the stunning and moving art of Khadija Saye.

On the brink of great success, the British artist who was missing in the aftermath of a fire that struck a London residential tower, has been confirmed among the victims of the blaze 🙁

The young photographer’s work is currently on view at the Diaspora Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale in an exhibition organized by the Independent Curators Forum.

Saye, 24, was living with her mother on the 20th floor of the tower block. At 3am on Wednesday, about 2 hours after the fire started, she posted on Facebook to say she had tried to escape but couldn’t leave due to the thick smoke and flames.

Nobody has heard from her since, prompting friends and family to search hospitals, but her death and now been sadly confirmed.
