Silvia Rossi, self portrait of me as my father, 2016

Artist Silvia Rosi will offer insights into her practice which explores her personal family history drawing on her Togolese heritage, and the idea of origins. She works with self-portraiture, video and text, to narrate her parent’s story of migration from Togo in West Africa to Italy.
