Tate Modern presents the exhibition “Belonging Together: Connecting Global Students, Refugees and Communities Through Making”.
This BP Art Exchange display documents participatory interventions devised by refugees, students and communities working alongside artist Albert Potrony in India, Denmark and the UK.
These combine with a series of photographs by Ben Smith pairing refugees with new friends made in Denmark and the UK and students portraits of fishermen after connecting with them and their families in Kochi, India.
Each portrait is shot by the sea or water to allude to migration and transience and includes an object chosen by the subject to signify belonging whether this is: a team shirt, diary excerpt or even a favourite fish.
