Resor // Journeys

In a couple of weeks I'll be taking part of a show that opens in Angered, Gothenburg Sweden, together with Phoebe Boswell and Aysan. All three of us have moved across borders. Our works contain narratives about the movements of people, migrating to find a new place, home, existence. About fleeing, about the longing for freedom.
26 September - 24 October

ESTER SVENSSON is Swedish, born in Pakistan and now lives in London. Her work is influenced by the landscapes and cultures she has lived in or passed through. Ester Svensson describes travelling or migrating people and how the sense of identity, belonging and home is in constant change.

Phoebe Boswell is an award-winning visual artist who was born in Kenya, grew up in the Middle East and now lives and works in London. She makes multimedia installations, animations, and drawings. Phoebe Boswell is also invited by GIBCA to participate in the biennial program.

AYSAN' s art studies in Iran was interrupted because she expressed political opinions. When she fled to Sweden she left also her art work behind. Here in Gothenburg she will create new pictures.
