'Home on the Move', Whitstable Biennale (8th-9th June 2018)
My recent video, 'Home: A Structure on Trial' (2017) based on the poem by Polish poet, Rafał Gawin will be included in an exhibition at the 64a Gallery during the biennale.
The 'Talking Transformations: Home on the Move' project was commisioned by Dr. Manuela Perteghella and Dr. Ricarda Vidal and comprises of two poems about home which represent the immigration and emigration routes into and out of the UK and seven corresponding artist videos:
"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."
