    Alter by Paria Moazemi Goodarzi and Francisco Llinas Casas

    Seven interactive, movable sculptures fill our spaces with sound and colour, representing stories of migration, for Refugee Week 2022.

    The sculptures are designed to be manoeuvred by both performers and the audience.

    Paria Goodarzi and Francisco Llinas Casas respond to contemporary social, political and cultural issues with reference to our society and ideas of identity.

    Their work is inspired by the rich history of Southbank Centre and notions of refuge and displacement.

    Born in Iran and Venezuela respectively, their work draws inspiration from the lived experiences of migration and diaspora. Their practice is research-based and multidisciplinary, often taking the shape of socially-engaged art projects, participatory art and performance pieces.

    Throughout the exhibition there is the opportunity to meet the artists, get to know more about their work and take part in creative workshops responding to the piece.

    Co-commissioned by Southbank Centre and Counterpoints Arts
