A candid discussion about the objects that connect us to home and the stories that they inspire. Listen as exhibiting artist, Anahita Norouzi and members of Saamis Immigration and Unisphere explore topics of displacement, memory and identity through object-based storytelling.
This discussion is inspired by Norouzi’s multimedia installation, Other Landscapes on show in the Esplanade exhibition Landed. Engaging with eight refugees, the artist got closer to their stories through the collection of sound recordings and objects. These interactions manifested into seven-foot photographic still lifes, capturing mementoes of home, brought on a six-thousand-mile journey to a new country.
Sammis Immigration Services Association has been assisting in the integration, adjustment and resettlement of immigrants and refugees in the community of Medicine Hat since 1988.
Unisphere Global Centre celebrates the diversity of culture worldwide. The primary goal of Unisphere is to create cultural consciousness and respect for the cultural other within in our Medicine Hat community.
Join us for this free, virtual discussion as we delve deeper into the human experience and explore the tangible and intangible items that describe one’s sense of home.
