“The refugee, the displaced person, the migrant is the emblematic figure representing ‘the quintessential experience of our time’” John Berger

Over the past century, war, population transfers, shifting borders and globalisation have resulted in an increasingly displaced existence, discordant with our need to locate ourselves within idealised and stable surroundings.

Working with video, Sophie Dixon explores the complex dialogues created between ourselves and our external environment, dialogues which are constantly reshaped as we traverse the fragile spaces of memory to find our own sense of belonging in the present.
