Inside the Embassy
Within my work I investigate the social and cultural impact of political organisations such as the embassy and the possibilities of legal abuses. Inspired by the event of citizens seeking shelter within extraterritorial zones I set up an array of research outsourcing improvised systems and typologies of representations.
Inside the Embassy explores the possibilities of a Diplomatic Mission serving individuals and not a country. Within a community centre in South London - a hub for social gathering and multitude citizenship - specific events are used as an instrument to render identity and cultural patterns of each member. Their Social backgrounds are translated into a symbolic language and reveal a zone of representation when transposed into the context of a home.
Within those activities props become agents reflecting on the commonalities of the members - a tropical background, immigration status and their neighbourhood. Flowers, laws and daylights articulate a new notion of what the embassy can be.
