Sinopsys

In February, two artists got on a cargo ship, and retraced one of the routes of the Transatlantic Slave Triangle – from the UK to Ghana to Jamaica, and back. Their memories, their questions and their grief took them along the bottom of the Atlantic and through the figurative realm of an imaginary past. It was a long journey backwards, in order to go forwards. This show is what they brought back. salt. Is about grief, ancestry, home, forgetting and colonialism. It’s about where colonial history exists in the everyday, the politics of grief and what happens inside Selina’s head every time someone asks ‘where are you from?’ and wont take Birmingham or her mum’s uterus for an answer. It’s about being part of a diaspora. It’s a show that creates a space for us to talk about all of these things, to see where we fit, and to think about the changing and healing that is still to come.
