Video: An Introduction to Arrivals + Departures

Arrivals + Departures is an interactive public installation about birth, death and the journey in-between by YARA + DAVINA, first opened at Somerset House, London in Autumn 2020.

Taking the recognisable form of two station or airport arrivals and departures boards, the artwork invites the public to share the names of people who have arrived and departed, as a way to celebrate a birth, someone living, or commemorate a death. The names submitted are of people that are important to the participants; personal or political, and can be shared with the help of a steward at the boards, or online.
