home: the exhibition
On Friday, July 21, I had my first solo exhibition called 'home.'.
Based on a digital photo journal I kept during a recent visit to Jamaica:
home.', is an ongoing, multimedia project, explores the theme of (un)belonging , fostering a sense of personhood and the tensions of negotiating citizenship within and beyond transnational borders.
'home.' disrupts Toronto's utopian conceptualization of multiculturalism and diversity to show that many Black folks—especially first generation youth of the Caribbean diaspora whose identity is always up for interrogation both within and outside of the community—have difficulty with grappling what and where is home. The relevance of 'home' will allow patrons to understand what it means to occupy the liminal boundary of finding self between places you feel both pushed out of and pulled into.
'home.' can now be viewed here.
