NAE is proud to present Here, an exhibition by the award-winning artist, Phoebe Boswell. The exhibition brings together new and existing artworks, some of which have not been seen in the UK before.


It includes the critically acclaimed installation, Mutumia (2016); I am (2020), a gallery version of P L A T F O R M (2020), a moving image installation of filmed portraits currently showing on 30m wide screens at the Lancy-Bachet train station in Geneva; the sculptural drawing, Transit Terminal (2014-2020), the large-scale video installation, I Dream of a Home I Cannot Know (2019) and site-specific hand drawings by the artist.

Boswell's work explores what it means to belong and to be free. Owing to a personal history rooted in colonial traces and contradictory legacies - upheavals, dualities, geographies, kinships, liberations, silences, and shifts of migration - Phoebe describes her work as a navigation of the space between, anchored to what she refers to as a "restless state of diasporic consciousness."

Combining draftswomanship and digital technology, she creates immersive installations and bodies of work which layer drawing, animation, sound, video, and interactivity in an effort to find language and make space robust yet open and multifaceted enough to house, centre, and celebrate the nuance and complexity of communities, voices, hearts, and histories which, like her own, are often systemically marginalised, simplified, pacified, homogenised, or sidelined as 'other'.
