At Home

Our final stages of creative research were affected by the Covid crisis. Consequently, we decided to experiment with our capacity to be creative virtually. Inviting our collaborators to create short films based on our themes of ‘home’ in relation to migration, we now asked them (and ourselves) to consider how these ideas took on new meaning as we all spent much more time ‘at home’ during the pandemic.  How, as artists, do we navigate home in our practice and navigate practice in our home?

Daily meals, walks and domestic objects became the lens through which we could reflect on home, art and migration.  Each collaborating artist received a set of instructions (click to pop up what the instructions were, in google doc we included the filming template) We then edited these home-made films together in the following omnibus.
