Migration Stories: Valentina Bonizzi

Works from the series ‘Il Gancio’ by Valentina Bonizzi were presented as part of her solo exhibition at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.

Using photography and video Bonizzi aims to create what she has termed the ‘Image Document’, exploring migrant experiences from 1850 to today. Her work explores the transformational experience of migration: a transitory and fluid existence which challenges one’s sense of certainty of place and meaning. The exhibition develops Migration Stories’ commitment to raising questions about citizenship and belonging.
