My Granddad’s Car

Karl Ohiri and Sayed Hasan - Project Description My Granddad’s Car is a collaborative project with artists Karl Ohiri and Sayed Hasan, where each traveled thousands of miles to Nigeria and Pakistan in an attempt to bring their grandfathers’ cars back to the UK, aiming to park them side by side in their country of birth. By documenting his journey and taking on performative roles for the camera, the project explores their histories, cultural heritage, and identities as a product of migration, determined to overcome boundaries in order to reconcile their ancestral pasts with their present lives.
