It has actually been over 100 days since we opened the doors to Kalopsia’s exhibition ‘Textile Migration / Textiles Leith’.
An exhibition with work from archive footage, art installations, wall hangings, video work, photographs and fictional narratives, through different approaches and various voices which invited questions about nostalgia, despair, identity, urban nature, alienation, traditions, culture, and death.
