About I Am From Reykjavik

‘So in 1965 my mum and dad book a holiday to the Isle of Wight; my mum’s pregnant with me. Dad gets a bit wary and writes to the hotel saying that we’re coloured and would it cause any problems as they don’t want to travel all that way, what with my mum’s condition, to be turned away. The hotel writes back cancelling the reservation. This time, I’m just rocking up. I’m bringing my own house and my own cups. You’re welcome to come help me build my shack and take tea with me, but I’m coming whether you like it or not.’ – Sonia Hughes This outdoor interactive installation is artist Sonia Hughes’ attempt to claim space. To test the limits of her and our hospitality. A bid to be a post-racial, global citizen. Setting herself up in the City of London and the Royal Docks she’ll build a temporary dwelling. We can watch, take part, have a chat with her. From far away London looks like a shiny glittering ball of diversity. Let’s see shall we?
