The project explored the role of material objects in memory construction of refugee women from Syria who live in Turkey. Displacement and sudden departure of home create ruptures in migrants’ sense of community, security and continuity. In this project, through art practice, we explored home through the importance of objects in post migration life. Objects that were carried transnationally or were purchased in Turkey were analysed with women and depicted in paintings. The project was funded by Global Challenge Research Fund, Royal Holloway University of London.
