No Place Like Home is a collaborative show featuring a video by Oliver Hickmet with a commissioned text by curator Elaine Tam. Exploring destination concepts through their packaging or presentation, the project investigates how these spaces are cultivated and their layers of history reformed in a time of instant leisure. Through looking at how lifestyle models are engineered into sites, and the ways in which locations are scripted, No Place Like Home questions how we relate to our environments under our constructed gaze.
