​Romani Embassy is an ongoing performance and installation by Delaine Le Bas.

About

It is embodied within the artist and or within the space that the artist occupies. As a community Roma have not “one homeland”, not one country, not one nation state as such and therefore no embassy to represent them in times of trouble. Romani Embassy of Delaine Le Bas is an information point, a living archive, an embodiment of reclaiming the stolen artefact that we have become. It can morph in size, change its appearance, appear and disappear. It is cardboard sign made on the move. It can be one person, it can possibly be more. It can be a distribution point to question majority societies opinion and ongoing mistreatment of Romani as an embodiment of an international population. It can be a silent act of resistance.
