The beginning, contd.

This is how it started.

IfNotHere_JL

I was invited to participate in a group exhibition curated by the artists John Lynch and Natasha Lolljee at the Old Parsonage and Parsonage Gardens, Didsbury, Manchester, UK.  The exhibition took place over two weeks in July, 2013.

Taking the exhibition’s theme – ‘If Not Here Where’ – literally, I thought: where would I rather be (if anywhere)?

– An image of a leopard lounging in a tree against a backdrop of endless savannah came to my mind.  At sundown, of course.

I long, sometimes, to be in Africa.

I long to be at home.
