ArtHouse Jersey presents No Place Like Home, an ambitious multi-disciplinary exhibition that reaches beyond the gallery to locations around Jersey.  For this exhibition twenty-three artists build a rich narrative that delves into personal stories, global issues, childhood memories, and speculative worlds as well as the bleak realities of the current housing market to look at a broader concept of home and what it might mean today. Curated by Rosalind Davis and Laura Hudson. Home may be a sanctuary or a place of danger, it might be stable or temporary, intimate or shared, rooted for generations or a refuge in times of need. Home might be a person, place or planet, a community to which we belong or contested land no longer available to us. We may all yearn for a Home, but homes are full of histories, meanings and tensions; charged with political, social and economic realities they are subject to both external forces and internal dramas. ‘Home’ means something important and different to each one of us.

For this exhibition ArtHouse Jersey has commissioned new work by Ana Čvorović (Bosnia/UK), Sasha Bowles (UK), Justin Hibbs (UK), Will Romeril (Jersey), Lindsay Rutter (Jersey) and Lisa Traxler (Isle of Wight/UK).
Alongside the commissions the curators have selected existing work by artists who resonate with the broad ranging themes of No Place Like Home including: Jananne al-Ani (Iraq/UK), Rachel Ara (Jersey), Jackie Berridge (UK), George Bolster (Ire/USA), Peter Jones (UK), Daria Koltsova (Ukraine/UK), Peter Liversidge (UK), Harriet Mena Hill (UK), Kate Murdoch (UK), Ravelle Pillay (South Africa), Saba Qizilbash (Pakistan/UAE), Martha Rostler (USA), Judith Tucker (UK), Joanna Whittle (UK), Eddie Wong (Malaysia/NZ) and Andrea V Wright (UK).

There will also be a programme of talks and events throughout the show. More to come! About ArtHouse Jersey
