Peter Sacks: Migrations

Migrations is the most geographically wide-ranging exhibition Peter Sacks has made to date, featuring materials gathered from around the world.

Sacks’ approach to painting utilises intimate material residues of life and often holds a personal significance — textiles, texts, and traces of objects—transforming them into active fields of energy, empathy and history. Sacks is preoccupied with forced migration, displacement and diaspora, concepts physically manifested in the dynamic fluidity of his paintings.
