"Common Salt ... was exquisite ... A miniature with epic undertones.”
Audience on Twitter

In 2018, artists Sheila Ghelani and Sue Palmer made and toured a new work Common Salt. Developed over four years of research into the colonial and geographical history of England and India using nature as our guide, the work is rich and resonant with our contemporary times.

Working against our collective amnesia, Common Salt explores the knotty complexity of lucre, trade, enclosures and borders. Supported by an Arts Council England grant, the live art work toured to libraries, museums and arts venues in London and the South West.

“The best hour I’ve spent in the Central Library ever…but also one of the most thought-provoking artistic encounters I’ve had in a long time.”
