Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.

A performance and art installation responding to the global refugee crisis - which includes special performances by Sheffield Hallam University students - has stunned audiences at the Biennale di Venezia International Art Exhibition, the Brownstone Foundation in Paris and at Gallery Jordan/Seydoux Berlin.

The installation - Yesterday.Today.Tomorrow - brings together powerful images drawn by refugees based at camps across Europe, in which they picture their past, present and future, and is one of the collateral events at the world-renowned art exhibition.

VENICE BIENNALE 

Paris-based artist Bryan McCormack spent a year collecting the drawings from refugees in official and unofficial camps and squats across Europe. The drawings, by child and adult refugees, depict scenes ranging from the terror of dangerous sea crossings and attacks on their home towns, right through to imagined futures of safe housing and playing with friends.

The drawings, which have been published on a daily basis through the project's social media channels, are the visual blocks and centre piece for installations and performances featuring SHU Performance students, in Venice, Sheffield, Paris and Berlin.
