Dear Helle

Year: 2014

Amir made two images with postcards of the former Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt as part of his works for his solo exhibition ‘ Dear Helle’, at the Immigrant Museum in Denmark. In this project, he worked with children from a school in Rødovre and the Trampoline House, an independent community center in Copenhagen that provides support to the refugees and asylum seekers, where they were invited to write their messages to Helle.
These postcards were later compiled together and sent to the prime minister office at the end of the show. Video interviews with migrants from different background were also presented to go with the postcards installation.
