Discover this delicate installation of white poplar leaves, created by artist Henna
Asikainen, and pause for a moment to reflect on the experiences of human migration it represents.
Created from foraging walks in the natural landscape with refugee and migrant communities, Delicate Shuttle weaves together a tapestry of fragmented experiences.
Our landscapes and communities have been shaped by centuries of immigration and exchange. From our colonising past we brought people, food and customs, alongside seeds and plants that make up landscapes as diverse as our population.
Using the white poplar leaf, which holds many meanings across cultures, Delicate Shuttle captures the collective experience of migratory movement. It reflects our relationship with the world, place, landscape and each other.
