OUR CONSTELLATIONS


Along with the expected definition of a constellation as a grouping of stars forming a recognisable pattern, the oxford dictionary also defines the word as follows.

1.1A group of associated or similar people or things.

In Our Constellations the routes of the Artist and those she befriends who identify as immigrants in the United Kingdom are mapped as abstract diagrams.

The series highlights each personal journey, and the process of creating these drawings becomes a conversation between the Artist and her new friends on how we move in the world.

Our constellations is a project that looks backwards, charting the unique and sometimes unexpected routes we take to get to where we are now, and how these journeys shape what we bring to our social and cultural interactions today.
