SUN SCREENS is a large-scale paste -up commissioned for the Kids Gallery in response to the exhibition Refugees.
When I was twelve years old my family fled East Germany seeking a better life in the West. Looking back we were refugees; we lived in a camp for several months before we became part of our new society. For the first time I realised I could express opinions freely, there was uncensored information about other cultures and unfettered access to art and music. These things completely opened my horizons to the possibilities of doing art myself. My grandfather was an avid photographer and as a very young child I was fascinated watching him work. Photography became an invaluable part of my life and is still integral to my art practice today.
— Mandy Schöne-Salter
A series of paste-up workshops facilitated by the artist will be available throughout the exhibition period for schools or groups. Work produced will be displayed as part of SUN SCREENS.
