Fi Dem

Fi Dem is both a durational work, a continued investigation into Blackness and Diaspora, and the title of the first video in a body of work that is made annually on the anniversary of the Empire Windrush docking in the UK on 22nd June 1948.
This video was released 22nd June 2018. It journeys through Minott’s personal diasporic journey and takes this moment of Windrush Day to focus on those that move and have been moved. Those who stay and cannot leave and all of the slippage in between. Shifting between personal and community moments of loss and joy that sits at the border she hopes this work can add to a conversation about these experiences.
