Filmed in multiple locations from Morocco to Manchester In Transit traces the primary western migration route across the Mediterranean to Europe. Produced in collaboration and through a series of conversations with British based asylum seekers and refugees at The Boaz Trust Manchester. The artist embodies the positions adopted by a migrant ‘in transit’ and performs these movements within the public realm in site specific locations. The perfomances are recorded on HD Video and presented as a moving image installation with sound. Recent exhibitions include; Radical and Real Film Shorts (HOME Manchester, 2018) Air Gallery Open (Altrincham 2018), Mediterranea (DOK Artist Space, Edinburgh) In Nothing Flat (Curated by Mark Devereux Projects, Manchester), In Transit, (Genesis Centre, Paris 2018), Across the Seas, (Sam Scorer Gallery, Lincoln 2018) and In Transit (Canada House Manchester 2018).

The artists wishes to thank The Boaz Trust, Mark Devereux Projects and The National Trust Calke Abbey.
