About

Am I My Brother's Keeper? by Kate Daudy is a large scale installation piece made out of a used UNHCR tent, lived in by a family of Syrians in 2015. The father of the family wrote his name in biro over the front door - Abu Teim.

The crochet doilies were made by internally displaced women in Syria, providing a revenue for them. The words are those of refugees, diplomats, aid workers, medical staff and soldiers involved in the refugee crisis. Around the black base are conditions for being defined as a refugee by the UN 1951 Convention for Refugees.

The dignity, courage and resilience of those she met struck Daudy deeply. The human qualities we all share, whatever our circumstance, seem to situate temporal considerations like nationality, political and religious difference as obstacles we try to overcome. Kate Daudy is a multidisciplinary artist, whose work looks at home and identity.
