Fairfield House is a sound portrait with drawings by Karen Wallis. It depicts a place where many different groups meet, including Bath Ethnic Minority Senior Citizens (BEMSCA) and the Towns Women’s Guild. The house itself is where Haile Selassie lived during his exile from Ethiopia and holds great significance for both Rastafarians and Ethiopians.
The sound portrait / film follows a day at the house combined with events in the lives of the immigrant community.
Karen was commissioned, by the EVA project at Aune Head Arts, to spend six months as Artist in Residence at Fairfield House. For more detail, visit the Artists' Commissions at www.auneheadarts.net/site/projects/eva/
