Tracing and documenting a journey through Europe, Asia, North Africa and Latin America, the project explores the importance of culture in relation to our sense of place, community and belonging.
The exhibition is centred on the artist’s past and memories, as the son of a migrant who left Colombia in an effort to secure a better life for his family.
This exhibition is supported by Fluxus Art Projects, the Franco-British fund for contemporary art.
Murillo (born in 1986, Colombia) earned his BFA in 2007 from the University of Westminster in London, and completed his MFA in 2012 at the Royal College of Art. His paintings, video art, installations, and performances evoke themes of community, and our different ways of living together, inspired by the artist's cross-cultural ties to London and his native Colombia.
Through interactions between different art forms - painting, sculpture, video - the artist produces multidimensional installations for an immersive experience.
