For a long time we’ve been working on a multi-media installation about internally displaced people in Iraq. It’s an experimental project that mixes photography, video and sound recordings to create an immersive documentary environment.

If you are in London please come along and see an early version of the work for yourself. We are showing it as part of exhibition called dis/placed organised by Counterpoints Arts.

The exhibition is from June 16th-21st at Shoreditch Town Hall. It’s open from 11am to 9pm.

We hope to see you there.
