‘Home’ explores the objects, memories and ideas which come together to form our concept of ‘home’ presented by women in prison.

The work, produced by 15 women in a North East prison, uses papier mache sculpture and paint to reconstruct objects which are significant to their experience of ‘home’. It asks whether ‘home’ is still a meaningful idea for women whose closest experience to it might have been a care-home, a prison cell or the city streets, and speaks of how we find home in past memory.

The exhibition will run from Tuesday 22 November until Friday 2 December. On the opening night (Tue 22 Nov), we will be joined by several women who contributed to the exhibition inside, and have since been released, who will speak about their experiences.

Presented by Junction 42.
