Featuring audiovisual work produced in Calais, France, The going towards amplifies the voices of refugees, volunteers and activists  in order to expose processes of marginalisation in the area.

Elisa Larvegoʼs body of work centers around the idea of ʻplaces of limitʼ – areas temporarily occupied due to social revolt or exile. Her sensitive documentary approach highlights the complexity of relationships between people and their surrounding landscapes. At Site Gallery’s Studio I, she exhibits a three-screen video and audio installation focused on the refugee context of Calais. 

The going towards is produced and shown with the support of the Republic and Canton of Geneva, the City of Lancy, the Astrapia association, and the University of Sheffield.
