Signed copy of From A Small Island
The words above, from the artist’s mother, describe how the effects of her 1956 migration from Jamaica to Britain have been long-lasting and painful.
Jackson takes a brave step, with this new series of photographic works, taking the intimacy of his parents’ story of migration as a starting point and examining, across ensuing generations, the impact of changing geography upon one’s psychological spaces.
Engaging the unresolved trauma of never again seeing family and home, he draws connections to history, space and notions of belonging amongst those people who left Jamaica forever to journey to the UK.
Published alongside an exhibition at MAC Birmingham (5 May – 8 July 2018).
