HOME

The Mosaic Rooms is pleased to present our first exhibition of work arising from the 2013 learning and engagement programme. The mixed media exhibition will include furniture and objects, photomontage artworks, oral history testimonies and artist reflections, resulting from various projects each exploring notions of home.

Students on the FdA Interior Design course at Chelsea College of Art worked with family members to uncover memories of domestic practice. The resulting furniture and artifacts express characteristics of home and tap into cultural understandings of domesticity. Project led by Fernando Rihl and Reem Charif.

Young people in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea worked with artist duo kennardphillipps to create photomontage artworks that express what home means to them and what it means to feel ‘at home’ in oneself and in society. Developed in collaboration with Making Communities Work and Grow, Chelsea Youth Club, Earl’s Court Youth Club, and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Youth Support and Development Service.

Members of the Yemeni community in London interviewed one another as part of an oral history project inspired by the exhibition Last of the Dictionary Men. Their testimonies reveal their sense of belonging. Visit our blog to see more about our learning and engagement work.

As part of the London Design Festival we will also be hosting:
