Saltworks

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition

Abstract

The project is an Associated Project for the Lisbon Triennale of Architecture - see http://www.close-closer.com/en/programme/associated-projects/saltworks. The project links migration, regeneration, and memory through the material and metaphorical qualities of salt. Salt is an everyday substance which contains histories, journeys and narratives. Salt links a market in London with sites in Portugal, connecting cultures, and representing the movement of past and present diasporas formed through trade and migration.From my research into diasporic links through salt, I've charted a series of individual life stories and salt products which connect particular sites in London to sites in other countries, including Portugal. For the Triennale, I propose to combine the material and metaphorical qualities of salt, to explore how to translate these narratives into a series of temporary saltworks, which also connect to the history of salt in Portugal. I'll be researching salt sites around Lisbon and then creating a temporary installation/exhibition of work in progress in a space in the city. I am making a short film, a series of photographic prints and an installation.
