Artlyst: A Belonging Project And Exiles Loss and Displacement

My latest article for Artlyst explores connections between A Belonging Project and Matilde Damele's Exiles series. Exiles will be at St Stephen Walbrook from 16-24 September, while A Belonging Project has recently shown work by Elizabeth Kwant and Micah Purnell, with more work to be shown at St Ann's Manchester shortly:

'Screenprints on black plastic bin bags, screenprints of migrants on bold backgrounds painted with house paints named after the positivity and stability they are not afforded, birdcages housing a variety of found and bought objects questioning the freedom consumerism appears to offer, and flags recording the number of detainees at Detention Removal Centres; all exhibited in churches or Cathedrals in London and Manchester. These church-located installations all explore the limits and boundaries, forming our understanding and practices of belonging.'
