As artists within the Black Country our work revolves around the migrant communities from the 20th century onwards. We wish to create a new art installation from the collections of latent photographs already in existence in the Asian community in the Black Country. The photographs depict this community’s exodus from South Asia from the mid part of the 20th Century. The aim of this project is to gather a collection of black and white images to show the true identity of south Asian migrants. This collection will lead to our first installation called ‘Arrivals Hall’ which will consist of a life size airport luggage conveyor belt carrying a collection of black and white images. The photographs along with the moving belt signifies the arrival and onward movement of a people. The installation will include audio and cultural references from the time period along with video dairies which will create an ambience of reflection. It will also leave an archival legacy for future generations enabling them to understand the trials and tribulations of a migrant generation.
