Our new Homesession resident, Pedro Moraes, will be here for the whole of April and May undertaking many different kinds of projects. Some will be collaborative listening sessions. Pedro Moraes interrogates the latent political and social forces implicit in the world designed around us. Working with no signature style, form, or medium, the artist instead approaches each exhibition site by carefully considering its context, history, and relations.
We begin our exchange with ThiStudio. Luke Drozd is an artist and illustrator based in London, who works across a variety of media. Through prints recordings, sculptures and performance, he will use his time at Homesession to try to unpick some of the cities narrative threads.

Think globally, act locally is a term that was popularized in the early 70’s to promote horizontal organization of local communities, especially in relation to new ecological movements. However, from the 80’s and 90’s, some multinational companies used the slogan as an economic model for corporate expansion. The work to be presented at Homesession consists of an installation of drawings and sculptures with a performance of a series of monologues that deal with boredom, ambition, heartbreak, and perseverance through adversity.
