About

Surface is delighted to present Homeland, a touring exhibition by the photographer and visual artist Paulina Korobkiewicz. 

Homeland addresses themes of political identity, belonging, memory and representation among migrant communities in West Bromwich and Hyson Green, the most ethnically diverse neighbourhood in Nottingham. The exhibition follows the 18-month residency of Paulina Korobkiewicz at Centrala, Birmingham. Accompanying Korobkiewicz’s work, Homeland will also include photographic projects from Sylwia Ciszewska-Peciak, Yuxi Hou, Ismail Khokon and Marcin Forys, with whom Korobkiewicz worked closely during her residency. The exhibition will reflect on the visibility of migrant communities and serve as a platform to share experiences of migration from various perspectives.

Homeland is a part of the research project Post-Socialist Britain?: Memory, Representation and Political Identity amongst German, Polish and Ukrainian Immigrants in the UK, a large-scale research project in collaboration with University of Birmingham and Nottingham Trent University exploring how and if memory is linked to political identity, and how this is manifested in a different national context. Surface is the second stop for Homeland, which previously displayed at Centrala in Birmingham.
