15. Return - Akeelah Bertram (UK)

Return explores the idea of diaspora as physical, mental and social states of separation. This interactive installation seeks to emotively connect audiences in different spaces, in this case Leeds Town Hall and The Tetley. Parallel portals will use gestures and audio-visual responses to create a sense of presence between these two locations. For Light Night, Leeds based artist Akeelah Bertram shares the first stage of this work’s evolution which will eventually culminate in a range of portals connecting audiences on the African continent with audiences of African descent globally.
