About

Arrivals + Departures is an interactive public installation about birth, death and the journey in-between by YARA + DAVINA, first opening at Somerset House, London from 10th September to 10th October 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. These names submitted are of people that are important to the participants; personal or political, and can be shared at with the help of a steward at the boards, or online. While the project was planned to open in April and tour the UK, it was postponed due to Covid-19, and now takes on a new resonance and urgency.
