From the series - “From a Small Island”, commissioned by mac birmingham, takes a personal perspective on migration from Jamaica to the United Kingdom and asks key questions relating to continued debates on migration:
How does home manifest for those within the African Diaspora?
What happens when many spaces have been posited as home?
What happens when narratives of home and belonging are denied through the legacy of colonialism?
This new series of work, explores themes of #identity, #migration, #memory and #family #fromasmallisland
The exhibition will open at mac birmingham and be on display from 5 May until 8 July 2018.
