Leave to remain

 

Interactive performance

All of these faced in the passport photos belong to me. This is an immigrant’s tale performed through a series of tests.

The work is inspired by tests experienced by immigrants in the United Kingdom, starting the moment they arrive at the airport. It begins with an intrusive health check, followed by a police registration that all must undergo, and finally a “Britishness” test before one isĀ  granted a “Leave to Remain” visa.
