What Would You Take? Exhibition at the 12 Star Gallery
December 12, 2018 @ 10:00 am - January 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
Curated by the writer Frances Stonor Saunders in collaboration with the Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas, this exhibition offers a view into the personal stories of individuals who are bearers for the memory of migration, as seen through the cherished objects they have chosen for the journey.
What would you take if you had to leave home? What can be spirited across borders, and what has to be left behind? What can you carry in your imagination, your language, your culture, your memories? And, after the scattering of things into the world, and the confusions of identity, how much is left of your life – of you – should you manage the crossing?
We are all, in some measure, from somewhere else. This is the story of leaving, but also of arriving, of borders crossed and lives continued.
Exhibition in the 12 Star Gallery at Europe House, Monday to Friday 10 – 6pm. Please note the gallery may be closed over the Christmas and New Year period, please check venue for details
