Walking piece details

LanguageEnglish (subtitles available)
Duration33.38 minutes

Summer 2021, wearing a costume that spelled ‘HOME’, artist Harriet Hill walked across the U.K. from her home in London to her family home in Wales. The costume contained a drop-down tent and carried everything she needed to make home for the 34 day journey. Wending her way across the country, Harriet talked to the many people she met along the way about “home” and its significance to them.

The HOME-ing film (33.38 minutes) is a document of this journey that was filmed by Harriet and her walking companions and edited in collaboration with George and Isaac Baggeley.

HOME-ing embodies the universal and the personal. Through enacting this journey Harriet explores how her childhood experience of moving from urban South London to rural Wales in the 1970s made her feel both an outsider and at home in the two locations. Passing through many diverse communities as she walks, she investigates the commonalities and differences in how people relate to home personally, socially and politically, revealing a snap-shot of the British public at this transitional moment in UK history.

This project was supported by Arts Council England
