ABOUT EXILED HOMES
This multidisciplinary and collaborative project sheds light on the human and creative interactions between two relatively isolated social groups: on one hand the carers from the Philippines exiled in Malta, and on the other hand, their elderly employers somewhat socially isolated due to their physical condition.
The project, which was done in two stages, first carried out anthropological research conducted by anthropologist Gisella Orsini. In the second phase, artists Aglaia Haritz and Abdelaziz Zerrou led a series of artistic workshops with home helpers belonging to the Filipino population in Malta.
