Homelands: Colombo Art Biennale 2014

In keeping with the Colombo Art Biennale’s theme of ‘Making History’, Homelands grapples with the relationship between self and place in a world of transitory identities and contested geographies. Curated by Latika Gupta,the exhibition is a unique take on contemporary British art. The collection excavates the idea of a ‘homeland’ to reveal a rich plurality of meaning; ideas of belonging, alienation, history and memory.

The artists featured in Homelands are: Angus Boulton, Nathan Coley, Jeremy Deller, Suki Dhanda, Jimmie Durham, Paul Graham, Graham Gussin, Mona Hatoum, Anthony Haughey, Tim Hetherington, Susan Hiller, Anthony Lam, Langlands & Bell, Rachel Lowe, Raymond Moore, Cornelia Parker, Martin Parr, Zineb Sedira, and David Shrigley.
