This week, we continue with our selection from the 'Altered Realties' exhibit (Lethaby Gallery till 15th March '17).
In part 3, we're featuring Esna Su (BA Jewellery Design 2015) who exhibited with 'The Burden II'. The exhibit follows on in her exploration of the issues of identity and memory, and how these are shaken in the context of political instability. This second collection represents the burden carried by Syrian Refugees and is shown in the symbolism 'Trousseau' - a new life or home transformed into a few belongings, carried on a journey. As material reality of 2016, the exhibit forces us to reflect but to also ponder the implications for the future and where we will be.
