Figures with absent landscapes

17 e-kus inspired by the photographic albums of some Nepali families in Nottingham

In 2017, thanks to the dedication and confidence of Dr Jean-Xavier Ridon, Frédéric Lecloux is the recipient of a Leverhulme Trust grant which allows him to be an artist in residence at the University of Nottingham. He is working there with the local Nepali community. His project is to look into their representations of their migratory experience in the UK by the means of their family albums and through a personal reinterpretation of these pictures in the form of aseries of 17 e-kus, a 17 seconds multimedia poem.
