LOOK UP: STAMPS TO ELSEWHERE

by Farhad Berahman

17 - 26 AUGUST

Across the city centre

An ArtReach and Leicester Print Workshop Commission for Journeys Festival International

Keep your eyes peeled for our Look Up exhibition as we'll  be posting stamps throughout town across the festival.

LOOK UP is a large scale outdoor visual arts exhibition by artist and photographer Farhad Berahman. For LOOK UP Farhad has created a collection of large-scale postage stamps for a fictional country that symbolises a home for migrants. The stamps will be exhibited in window spaces throughout Leicester City Centre.


The work explores the theme of displacement and the resettlement of communities. The images used in the stamp designs will represent countries that have the highest number of refugees in the UK including Iran, Syria, Afghanistan and Sudan.
