'The House that was my Home' is an exhibit presented by artist and writer Michael McMillan

The House That Was My Home was originally presented as part of the Advent(US) Arts Festival, St Mary’s Church, Walthamstow in 2017, where McMillan reflects on his experience of growing up in Clapton, Hackney through the things that were cleared from an African-Caribbean household after his parents passed away. From this clearance created an installation I Miss My Mum’s Cooking as an homage to his mother’s food culture that was part of the Who More Sci Fi Than Us exhibition (KAdE Kunsthal, Amersfoort, Netherlands 2012). The House That Was My Home also uses elements from McMillan’s critically acclaimed exhibition The West Indian Front Room (Geffrye Museum 2005-06), the popular documentary Tales from the Front Room (BBC4 2007).

Michael McMillan is a British born London based writer, playwright, artist/curator and scholar of Vincentian migrant heritage who explores material culture, diaspora, migration in his interdisciplinary practice that uses mixed-media installation, oral histories and text.
