Freedom of Movement


Evoking the Olympic marathon in Rome 1960 in which Ethiopian Abebe Bikila won Africa’s first gold medal, running barefoot and becoming a sporting legend and symbol of an Africa freeing itself from colonialism in the process, the artists have re-contextualised this amidst Rome’s controversial rationalist architecture. A new race involving refugees and immigrants staking a claim to 'freedom of movement'.
