War, violence, poverty and persecution leaves at least one in every 122 humans on the planet a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum.
Harrowing stories about migrants and their plight on television and radio motivated Lucy Woodley to produce an exhibition of multi–media sculptures going on show at Tobermory’s An Tobar gallery soon.
Working with silver and found objects, she uses symbolism to express themes around migration and a world in flux.
‘We are being forced into reconfiguring our borders and along with them our identities. Ultima Thule, is my way of exploring the themes around migration, the hope and the trepidation that comes with any journey that traverses known and unknown territories,’ she said.
The exhibition runs from Saturday June 1 to Friday August 9.
