LEAVE//REMAIN | 2016 Bank Street Arts members’ exhibition | Tuesday 25th- Sunday 30th October
Francesca Busca, Brexit.
‘I have been living in London as a EU citizen for 17 years. I come from Italy, yet I feel more British than most. I speak with little if no accent, thanks to my British friends. I took the citizenship test a few years ago, ready to apply for a UK passport. But then…I did not think I would ever need it. A decade later, Brexit happens. I felt like I lost my home overnight.’
‘I am fascinated by both artificial and natural elements, which I restlessly play with in new combinations, contrasting noble material with rubbish. My aim is to prove their reciprocal need, how rubbish is a relative definition.’
Francesca’s work is being exhibited as part of LEAVE//REMAIN, our 2016 members’ exhibition. We’ll be hosting an open evening at 6pm on Friday 28th Oct.
