Things That Remind Me of Home

Navi Kaur (b. 1993) is an artist based in Birmingham, UK. She often makes work commenting on the migrant experience, specifically around journeys, environment, storytelling and documentary. Inspired by an archive of family photographs found in her grandparents’ home, she produces work in response to the lives they have created here in the UK, encompassing their faith and daily regimes, working predominantly through the process of digital photography and film.

Navi seeks therapeutic qualities in the process of meeting people that have experienced hardship and communicating their stories through documentary and text works. She works closely with her Grandmother, Surinder, to better understand her own heritage and culture through feelings of displacement in organised environments and highlights the importance of celebrating cultural diversity through cross collaboration.

'Things That Remind Me of Home' is a photographic series consisting of things, keepsakes and food items that create a narrative between childhood memories and emotional attachments between Navi, her grandparents and their home. Each item has its own story which evokes a moment of happiness for the artist and relatability for the audience.
