'Talking Transformations: Home on the Move' commission


I've recently completed a video based on a poem about home by Polish poet, RafaƂ Gawin for a new project led by Dr. Manuela Perteghella and Dr. Ricarda Vidal.

"Talking Transformations seeks to offer a platform to examine what ‘home’ means to us at a time when notions of ‘home’ in Europe are becoming more fluid, being challenged and reshaped by unprecedented migration. Motivated by Brexit, this project focuses on the UK and the countries most important to EU migration into and from the UK: respectively Romania and Poland and France and Spain. British poetry is sent through literary translation via France to Spain before returning home; in parallel, an original Polish poem travels through translation from Poland via Romania to the UK before returning to Poland."
