In 2016, 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.
It's about where colonial history exists in the everyday, the politics of grief and what happens inside REP Foundry alumnus, Selina's head every time someone asks 'where are you from?' and won't take Birmingham or her mum's uterus for an answer.
