Made in collaboration with a group of unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors from Afghanistan, Iran, Sudan and The Gambia.
Using photographs from a series of performative actions, these digital collages use the universal language of gesture to respond to the participants’ shared experiences of living in the UK. The layered and repetitive patterns of their hands reflect the geographical topographies of their homelands as well as their individual journeys to being here, now.
Developed through the project Here/Now, commissioned by Kettle's Yard and supported by Cambridge City Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, Cambridge Regional College, North Cambridge Community Partnership and Arts Council England.
