Iman Tajik & Jonas Jessen Hansen

Working with water as an object, artist Iman Tajik has created multiple videos showing everyday life, obscured by water talking about the European migrant crisis, which over the last couple of years has seen a surge of people entering the continent. Many people are refugees fleeing conflict and dream of a safer and better life.

Through audio recordings from Glasgow Night Shelter, artist Jonas Jessen Hansen has been interviewing people from two different groups. One being the volunteers trying to help where they can, and the other being asylum seekers, who have fled wars, foreign or domestic, for the best chance of survival; they are left in a state of limbo awaiting a future.
