An art exhibition about migration, supported by Save the Children.
Artists: Teresa Albor and Lais Pontes
Curators: Catalina Bunge and Clara Rocha
The Things We Leave Behind is an exhibition of the research-based project of artists Teresa Albor and Laís Pontes. Inspired by a collection of things left behind in a Serbian transit camp and on the shores of the Island of Lesbos in Greece, the artists invite the audience to interact with these objects and share their experiences, based on personal and emotional connections with migration.
The exhibition will include photographs and other documentation of exchanges between the artists and participants. Our own histories and experiences, as well as the reality of people who are currently migrating will provide the soil upon which this project grows. The public will be invited to engage on a personal angle, establishing horizontal connections and moving beyond cultural or ideological barriers.
During the exhibition, three workshops and a live performance are planned to encourage reflection on issues associated with the migration-- a sociocultural phenomenon that affects us all.
