Bearers of Home is a new artist commission by BLKBRD Collective.

For many, home is an area of certainty, a space of consistency. But with the pandemic, homes have become spaces of ambiguity and instability.

These five double-sided banners, set on the Kingsland Road lawns, are a statement: a commitment to Hackney, London and the world that we bear witness to the many voices that make a home, a community and a society.

BLKBRD Collective's series of images use iconographic statuesque imagery to form a more inclusive picture of what constitutes community and whose stories should be remembered.

As the Museum of the Home opens as the place to rethink what home means, Bearers of Home is an invitation and a statement that all are welcome.

These large visual scenes represent the voiceless and those who are marginalised from the mainstream, such as refugees, migrants, asylum seekers and the homeless, and all those that see home as an intangible space or even an unattainable need and desire.
