‘Home is where the body isn’t.’ is an exhibition of work by this year’s Turf x Croydon College artist-in-residence, Henrique Paris. Henrique is a multidisciplinary artist exploring how structures like ‘home’, space, time, movement and verbal language can either restrict or free us in expressing ourselves. The exhibition takes as its starting point the idea of ‘home’ as a feeling, as opposed to a physical place. The works in the show – which include photography, video, sculpture, text, and performance – explore this feeling and consider how our sense of ‘home’ can inform our ability /inability to communicate with the world around us.

// ABOUT HENRIQUE PARIS
Henrique Paris’ practice is based on philosophical questions around; being, human behaviour, communication and cultural & social structures which affect our behaviours. In turn, Paris explores how these behaviours represent ourselves in the world. Often Paris’ practice is a collaborative endeavour between the artist and other individuals, or involves the setting up of situations and installations where others are influenced to interact or behave in certain ways.
Paris has completed Croydon School of Art’s Foundation Art & Design course in 2019.
