New Work

The Saatchi Gallery on 2 - 6 February 2017

This fine-bound artists’ book features an anti-hero embarking upon a constantly interrupted journey during which he experiences cleansing and rebirth through acts of resistance and violence as he attempts to move around freely in a savage landscape full of borders and controlling powers. The text is inspired by Danny Flynn’s work with historian Marina Carter and a team of academics from Leeds and Edinburgh Universities on the issues of diaspora, challenging existing assumptions held toward migrants. As we arrive at a new place we begin each phase as the ‘other’, the unknown new arrival, someone to be wary of, to be feared, not yet trusted, not yet a familiar.
