‘Forced migration is central to Serge Alain Nitegeka’s Structural Response III. The theme of disrupted lives, disrupted work and disrupted spaces is, through his intervention within the Atrium, intended to enable a discussion about displacement. His use of simple building materials such as pre-cut timber, references the aesthetics of temporary structures that forced migrants often construct.’ _ @norvalfoundation
