The Onion and Other Stranger Tales is part of Stella’s ongoing work with the notion of hospitality and how it relates to arts practice and attitudes to migration. The word ‘hospitality’ has its roots in the word ‘host’, which has two origins: the Latin for ‘stranger’ or ‘enemy’, and conversely, ‘guest’. This piece explores complex and sometimes conflicting perceptions, and offers audiences an experience of art as an act of hospitality.
