PLACES, SPACES AND TRACES
Places, Spaces, Traces moves on to Sint Anna-ten-Drieën from 19th June to the 25 September.
The exhibition reflects on my Romani heritage and our concept of place. I am interested in the commonalities we have as people, the need for a place of our own, family and food. With migration, changes in our working lives and increasing opportunities to travel, our certainty about who we are and where we fit in is unsure.
LV21 is less than 20 miles down the road from me so I couldn’t not go to see it! How lucky am I to be living where I do. I was one of the first visitors up the gangway this afternoon and chose to go today because they had a cafe survey about (diminishing) open spaces on the Hoo peninsua which is where I live as well as Cas’s exhibition. The bigger pieces are much lighter in weight than I expected them to be, especially as they are designed to be looked at from both sides, but hold some very poignant words. I was very much drawn to the display of vessels formed around the discarded beakers used by some of the migrants rescued from the English Channel and the shores of Kent.
