Joanna Rajkowska, ‘Chariot’, Art Night, London, 7 July 2018


Joanna Rajkowska’s performative and participatory project Chariot invites the local community in Nine Elms to engage with, and respond to, the “multicultural vehicle” of the artist’s hand-crafted chariot — a vehicle whose long history transcends national borders and local dialects. Inscribed on either side of the vehicle are the words estrangement.’ Words that differ by a one single diacritic mark. The project welcomes the’ غربة chariot’, and’ عربة local population of the estate to express their feelings and opinions instigated by the chariot, be it on immigration, alienation, community or on their dreams and aspirations.
