In Conversation with Kalliopi Lemos

May 2, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In Conversation with Kalliopi Lemos 

Tuesday 2nd May from 6.30pm 

Join artist Kalliopi Lemos who will be discussing her new work Wooden Boat with Seven People, currently on display in Spital Square and the influences on her work.

The installation makes direct reference to the successive waves of migrants who have arrived in Spitalfields through the centuries, narrating humanity’s continuing perseverance for survival and dignity. An authentic wooden fishing boat containing seven seated steel human figures, Lemos’ sculpture symbolises the universal struggle and suffering of millions of uprooted migrants around the world.

This will complement the current exhibition Refugees: The Lives of Others which focuses on the contribution to British art by German refugees currently on display at the Ben Uri gallery.
