You have the opportunity to watch Patel’s new work ‘Baa’s House 11’, commissioned by CIRCA in collaboration with the Film London Jarman Award, for free, every evening throughout November on the big screen at Picadilly Circus. The work is screened at 8:20pm.

Exploring themes of immigration and identity on a global stage, ‘Baa’s House 11’ pays homage to Patel’s grandmother, performed by Indian Kathak dancer, Vina Ladwa. Co-opting billboard spaces in five major cities, Patel shows his grandmother looking out from the screen, empowered in everyday labour, whilst surveying passers-by watching below. Typically under-represented in such spaces of mass media and advertising, the matriarch challenges audiences around the world to confront the power of such torchbearers of cultural heritage within the migrant community.
