Helen Teede: Unhomed

12 March 2017

Free

Helen Teede explores the relationship between home and identity. The title refers to “that species of the frightening that goes back to what was once well known and had long been familiar; going through the process of leaving her home permanently, her paintings evoke the uncanny moment when a seemingly safe and stable place suddenly becomes something other and outside, traversing a fine line between the familiar and the terrifying. Fragments of her personal life enter and become a part of the discourse of migration and displacement, a discourse intimately connected with violence, that occupies a major part of recent world history. Unhomed is a deeply personal body of work that at the same time speaks to a wider discourse of loss, dislocation and identity both in Zimbabwe and in the world today.
