Homeland graphic project.jpg

Home/Land developed from discussions with Loughborough University’s Marsha Meskimmon and Marion Arnold, who were both part of an international network of academics researching ways in which photographies, in the widest sense, play an important role in the articulation of gender, identity, place and citizenship.

From this network (The Lens of Empowerment: Gender and Nation in Contemporary Women’s Photography), Jean Brundrit and Sarah Ciurysek, along with artists Nina Mangalanayagam and Mitra Tabrizian, selected by Radar, were commissioned to develop a  new series of lens-based works. During the summer of 2012 some of the artists took up residency at the University to work on the project, they also took part in the Home/Land: Women, Citizenship and Photographies conference organised by Marsha and Marion.

Whilst the artists’ practices were rooted in photography, a number of them used the commission as an opportunity to work within different media, creating four distinct, site specific pieces, each a personal interpretation and understanding of place, identity and landscape.
