'A Place Greater Than Home' by Debbie Harman explores the relationship between two ‘twinned’ towns, her hometown of Goole, East Yorkshire and its twinned site Zlotow, Poland.  In 2017 this project resonates with emotion and confusion after Brexit. It is a document of the unclear travel journey, without speaking the language or knowing the Polish land. 

The journey was eased by finding comfort in the lands visual similarities, be that waterways or post industrial landscapes. The artist diced between clarity and confusion. In the act of attempting to form visual ties between the towns, constantly confronted with the difficult politics of immigration that surrounded the project.  The final exhibition is not geographically identified, ‘A place greater than home’ exists in the space between the two destinations. It is a space where you can identify your own sense of home.

Debbie Harman is a Graphic Art graduate of Leeds met University and most recently an MA Photography graduate of London College Communication. A Lens based Artist and experimental documentarian, exploring issues in society and communities, drawn to localised stories that speak on a universal level. The Artist’s practice is interested in the dialogue of the poetics of space and place, operating on the borders of fact and fiction, the known and unknown.

'A Place Greater Than Home' will be shown at White Cloth Gallery from 12th April 2017 - 8th June 2017.
