Displaced – square

Made for the Fragments exhibition ( Stockport 2018) this series of quilts takes the words ‘home’ in various languages, turns them into graffiti tags, and displaces them by segmenting and rotating until only fragments of the original are left and the original words are barely recognisable. Greater Manchester has a population which speaks over 200 languages, many of whom are refugees or have experienced other forms of forced relocation from their homes.
