No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain
20 Sep 2017 - 25 Feb 2018|
Migration Museum at The Workshop|
This exhibition explores seven pivotal migration moments in Britain’s migration history. Some brought people together, others moved people apart; all had a profound effect on individuals who lived through them – and on the country as a whole. Each moment will be explored thematically through a combination of art, photography and personal stories.
Spanish artist Roman Lokati is one of the contributors along with Alex Daw, Andy Barter, Angélica Dass, Deirdre Kelly, Empathy Museum, Hormazd Narielwalla, Leyla Reynolds, Liz Gerard, Majid Adin, Malgosia Stepnik, Nick Ellwood and Kamal Kaan, Rock Against Racism collective members, Rob Pinney, Shao-Jie Lin, The Singh Twins and Susan Stockwell.
Roman Lokati’s three figures represent refugees: a child, a man and a woman. When you look at these figures from the side they almost disappear. In some way they reflect the invisibility and isolation of refugees today – their humanity, their contribution, their voices.
