Phoebe Boswell: Here




New Art Exchange presents Here, an exhibition by the award winning, internationally renowned artist, Phoebe Boswell. The exhibition brings together new and existing artworks, some of which have never been seen in the UK before. It includes the critically acclaimed installation, Mutumia, the sculptural drawing, Transit Terminal, a large-scale video installation, I Dream of a Home I Cannot Know, a newly commissioned performance of The Lighthouse and a gallery version of a new work, PLATFORM.

Boswell’s artistic practice explores what it means to belong, to be free, and to exist as a human as well as a member of the diaspora. Born in Kenya to a Kikuyu mother and British Kenyan father, brought up in the Arabian Gulf and now living and working in London, Phoebe said “I always had a fragile understanding of the definition of home.” Her artworks often form layered, open works which seek to house and celebrate stories like her own, stories – and identities that are often marginalised or side-lined as “other.”
