NO PLACE LIKE HOME
NO PLACE LIKE HOME was the first exhibition of the Rohingya Cultural Memory Centre outside the refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar. Specially curated by David around the meaning of home, belonging and memory, the exhibition showcased a selection of embroidery artworks crafted by Rohingya women from the RCMC‘s collections: I always dream of my house when I sleep and Inside my Home.
The show opened in November 2020 at the Canadian High Commission in collaboration with The Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation, IOM, UNHCR and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

The entrance displayed an artwork by Bangladeshi artist Kamruzzaman Shadhin titled The Elephant in the Room and made back in 2018 in collaboration with Rohingya artisans in the refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar. Due to Covid restrictions the exhibition was made available online through this virtual exhibition on the Canadian High Commission social media.
