Draw Me a Home  (2020). Site responsive project and socially engaged reserach project in collaboration with curator Natalie Pace and Matthew Shaul, followed by online & window exhibition at Departure Lounge Luton. 


Inspired by conversations and encounters across Luton and on social media, new works, which respond specifically to the sudden changes imposed by the Coronavirus outbreak, were displayed in Departure Lounge's window as well as online. The artworks included three interactive works and audiences could contact a free phone number to listen to short stories (or leave their own contribution), download drawings to 'colour in' at home or view the artist's living room via a two way webcam. Drawing on Idit’s experience of producing work that is convivial and rooted in place but relates to complex socio-political issues, the project explores notions of home, belonging, movement and transformation within the context of Luton, through research, conversations, and the production of new work.
