A Migrant's Tale

Tanya Houghton

03 Nov 2016 to 08 Nov 2016
A Migrant´s Tale will seek to understand the complicated intertwined narratives that define urban existence at a very human scale. Focusing on Migrants living and working in London the work aims to explore the human relationship to food and the connection this affords migrants to their homelands. Moving away from the representation of the geographical groundings of home and focusing on the concept of the cognitive home.
The work will combine visual imagery, research and a conversational meal set in the gallery space that seek to engage both local and international audiences, creating an open dialogue about the contemporary representation of home.
