Big Walls and Windows

26 January – 20 February 2022

This year’s Big Walls and Windows Project presents Hidden Identities by Manyi Takor, a first-year BA (Hons) Fine Art student at Central Saint Martins. Through her multimedia practice she explores the relationships between humans, interrogates cultural intersectionality and examines events and objects that lie beyond tangible space

Hidden Identities deconstructs the idea of self through the lens of an autistic, invisibly disabled, black immigrant. It examines how identity is formed by experiences often related to the expectations of others; it probes the dissonance from dwelling along liminal margins. It asks the audience to consider what acceptance and equity really mean in a space where expected and acceptable values are incongruent with the ego.

The Big Walls and Windows Project has been an opportunity for students at Central Saint Martins and Camberwell College of Arts to make temporary artworks at each site, on a scale that would normally be prohibitive due to material and equipment costs. It is supported by Liquitex and Cass Art, who cover the material and equipment costs.
