Home Where Home Is Not is an ambitious exhibition by Glasgow-based artists Sogol Mabadi and Birthe Jorgensen reimagining fixed notions of home, and what it means to be of more than one place.

Home Where Home Is Not, Monday 24th June to Saturday 3rd August, GWL, visit during GWL opening hours

After research and group work with women connected to Platform and Glasgow Women’s Library, this exhibition of new works includes installations, wood-carved sculptures and sound works, and will stretch across both sites in Glasgow’s East End.

This exhibition is in partnership with Platform and the artist’s are working across both GWL and Platform so please do take the time to visit both sites. Visit the exhibition at Platform, Easterhouse, between Friday 28th June and Saturday 3rd August. You can find more information here.
