Lead Artist: Saba Akhtar
TYPE: RE:BUILDING RESILIENCE
The Anatomy of A Home is a multi-media installation exploring a person’s relationship to home. Audiences are invited to walk through a blueprint of a house etched into the floor and observe the artifacts placed within. This is part of a larger performance project that explores Saba’s relationships to home and isolation, in her past and during COVID-19.

We regret that Workman Arts is not a barrier-free location. There are several steps from the street to the front door and interior steps leading to the Main Hall, upstairs, and downstairs. There is ample seating available, and washrooms between Skey Room and the Chapel (main floor) and outside Roseneath (upstairs) are gender-neutral. Workman Arts is a fragrance-free space (please don’t wear perfumes or scented products).
