|Description||This embroidered map reflects on British identity, racism and government policy in text which forms the shape of London around a red River Thames. Because embroidery has become strongly associated with women’s work in a domestic context, it is a particularly powerful medium for the artist’s challenge to the unjust treatment of her father, a victim of the Windrush scandal which saw the denial of legal rights, detention and deportation of Caribbean commonwealth citizens. Out of the river spill the words: “acknowledge the pain and trauma you have caused. Actions speak louder than words”.|
