About City of Homes/Miasto Domów

Art27scotland invites all for the evening of animation, music, linocuts and collages exhibition, and... Polish food!

'City of Homes' is an audio-visual artwork - an outcome of residency by Marta Adamowicz and Robert Motyka. Artists have set out to work with the Polish community in Edinburgh to invoke a discussion and collect accounts of the immigrant experience and to establish if a connection exists between architectural structures and the concept of ‘home’.

They have edited images and interviews with participants into a spectacular experience where sound and animation tell very personal stories of migration and belonging.

The artworks (linocut prints and collages) created during the series of workshops with the artists will be shown during the exhibition opening on the night before the premiere screening.

The evening will be finalised with the performance from the Edinburgh's own Eastern European Folk Music Ensemble DAVNO - a female collective bringing the unique traditional sounds of the region to Scotland.
