“Migration Museum“, commissioned by Untitled Projects Theatre Company, involved 2 commissioned artists responding to the theme of “migration through our art forms”. In collaboration with Glasgow Museums, Rachel Thibbotumunuwe and Tawona Sithole had access to museum stores in Nitshill and picked museum objects to help in their interpretation.
The work was shown in a pop-up exhibition on Sunday 26 October 2014. Tawona produced two pieces, a film of Shona and English poetry (in collaboration with Showman Media) – see below, and a giant passport. The exhibition and project have generated a lot of interest and possibilities for future collaborations and development of the work.
