‘Origins: looking forward, looking back only to find yourself, caught, in the space of in-between’
Pop-up exhibition project

Saturday 16 November, 2pm – 4pm
‘Origins: looking forward, looking back only to find yourself, caught, in the space of in-between’ is a collaborative visual research project and exhibition that documents the migrant experience of six women who have collectively shared their memories of the past while contemplating the present.
The project textually and visually catalogues the journey of the women who originally come from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales, but are now living in Newcastle, Australia. The exhibition presents work by Aine Marie Sheridan, Amanda Donohue, Annemarie Murland, Jacky Worsdell, Kim Rich, and Sue Haasnoot. They each have individual, personal stories of migration to retell and jointly, over the duration of this year-long project, they have reconsidered the impact that migration has had in shaping their sense of self in place, who they are and how they live today.
