Today I went to Edinburgh Scottish National Portrait Gallery to visit in particular exhibition Migration Stories: Valentina Bonizzi.
” Italian-born artist Valentina Bonizzi has lived in Scotland for eight years. Using photography and video Bonizzi aims to create what she has termed the ‘Image document’, exploring migrant experiences from 1850 to today. Her work explores the transformational experience of migration: a transitory and fluid existence which challenges ones sense of certainty of place and meaning. The exhibition develops Migration Stories’ commitment to raising questions about citizenship and belonging” information courtesy of -linkhttp://www.nationalgalleries.org/whatson/exhibitions/migration-stories-valentina-bonizzi/
