'Longing for home' is a new exhibition presented by French artist and Kingston Arts Grant recipient, Sofie Dieu. The exhibition is the outcome of a series of community workshops inviting female and non-binary identifying textile practitioners to share their diverse experiences of migration through art and storytelling.
The exhibition sews together the individual embroideries created during the workshops to make a collaborative textile work. Paying tribute to the unique experiences of each practitioner, this project brings our community together to reflect on migration and belonging in relation to our feelings of home.
