Freedom of Movement II
Commissioned by Tate Moderron's community team and Better Bankside for "FROM THE OTHERSIDE" project.
Public art installation Freedom of Movement II, The large poster installing as protest, explores the ‘right to travel as a human rights concept, encompassing the right of individuals to travel from place to place within the territory of a country, and to leave the country and return to it’. The document is autobiographical and recognisable. The bird is spotlighted as a symbol for freedom, as well as referencing landscapes that know no borders.
