This exhibition, Greetings from Aggaw Aggaw employs souvenir tea towels as the foundation to make a body of creative work which tests ideas relating to place, tourism and national identity. The work highlights the role of codes, symbols and icons that develop into what Dean McCannell calls 'tourist markers' and questions their contribution to ideas of place, national identity and the tourist experience inviting audiences to look beyond the surface to a deeper, more complex understanding of where we live.
