Watra, Storefront, 64 Bute Street, Luton, until March 25
There’s still plenty of time to catch this exhibition. Polish-born Luton artist Karolina Lebek explores her Lemko heritage through traditional song and singing as one of the factors that continue to unite this now dispersed community.
Lebek will investigate themes of migration, displacement and assimilation informed by experiences of the Lemko community, an ethnic minority forcibly removed from their ancestral homeland in the Carpathian Mountains in a series of violent deporta
ations, culminating in Operation Vistula in 1947. Merging sound, video, photography and sculpture, Karolina’s work “exists as a record of getting inside of a scar, reaching towards the most vulnerable source that yet radiates strength”.
Karolina has lived and worked in Luton for many years and graduated from the University of Bedfordshire, before studying at the Royal College of Art.
