Helina Metaferia: Home | Free Helina Metaferia, Woodn't It Be Beautiful, 2016, digital print, 12" x 12"

"Home | Free" addresses a diasporic longing for a physical and psychic home in a time of increased voluntary and involuntary mass migration of black bodies. Through an interdisciplinary practice of performance, video, installation, photography, objects, and mark-making, artist Helina Metaferia presents the complexity, transformation, and rebellion that come with migration, immigration, and gentrification. "Home | Free" explores the use of home-building materials as art objects and the visual language of maps, lines, text, and movement — all tools to help the body navigate the world.
