Abstract

The Migrants, Me and You is a creative practice-based study which explores the states of being placed and being displaced in the context of human migration and how these can be visually represented. It provides new insights into the roles that identity and displacement play in the creative process (as artists, how we are placed/displaced); whether artwork created from personal experience can become representative of the stories of others (how they are placed/displaced); and how viewers are placed or displaced by artwork which tackles difficult issues like migration.
