Haimaz, Heimr, Hjem, HeemHām, Home is a broad examination of what it means to be home, in some cases, to lack a home, and the potential to create a home outside widely accepted and prescribed expectations. In a time of cultural, political, economic, environmental, and psychological ‘home’ instability for many, and as people emerge from homes from which they were isolated post-pandemic (where home could be both a prison and a site of refuge), the exhibition seeks to explore the notion of home (real, constructed, remembered, displaced, damaged, and imagined), under the lens of the Old English word hām, which refers to a place where many souls are gathered.
