Online Launch: Home Away From Home (2021)

We’re delighted to announce the online launch of ‘Home Away from Home’! Over the last few months, the project has evolved and now takes on two forms: a publication and a digital VR exhibition. We’re thrilled and thankful to have some wonderful creatives on board!

The first edition of ‘Home Away from Home’ looks into the fluid notion of ‘home’ and narratives surrounding it—from frustrations to contentment, shared vulnerabilities to collective hopes. It includes artworks and texts by Christie Chan, Claudia Obag, Dovile Lapinskaite, Sofia Barton and Marga RH.
