Exhibition: The going towards, 31 October - 12 November 2023
The University of Sheffield and Site Gallery presents The going towards by artist Elisa Larvego. We invite you to join us from 5pm on Tuesday 31 October for our festive opening. You can experience this new exhibition until 12 November 2023.

Featuring audiovisual work produced in Calais, France, The going towards amplifies the voices of refugees, volunteers and activists in order to expose processes of marginalisation in the area. Elisa Larvegoʼs body of work centres around the idea of ʻplaces of limitʼ - areas temporarily occupied due to social revolt or exile. Her sensitive documentary approach highlights the complexity of relationships between people and their surrounding landscapes. In Siteʼs Studio I, she exhibits a three-screen video and audio installation focused on the refugee context of Calais.

Free entry.
