Preview evening: Friday 12 January, 5.30pm

Altered Landscapes asks you to navigate, reflect and absorb the experiences and stories of refugees. For this exhibition, delGado travelled to Greece, Macedonia and Calais to film, photograph and record the journeys taken by Syrian refugees. delGado has not filmed these ‘invisible’ people who proliferate our media, but the places they have passed through. There are traces of their existence, fragmented experiences, fleeting moments and marks left on the land as they pass through to find safety.

Using video, photography, light and sound, Altered Landscapes encourages you to open up contemplation and discussion about the current situation in Europe, a place that has become filled with militarised border control.

“delGado’s film and exhibition offers a deeply personal account and heartfelt insight of what it is like to flee your home country amidst a war in search of an alternative.”  Pearl Findlay, Disability Arts Online
