In this article, I discuss my exhibition of Home Practice on matrilineal heritage in Manchester in 2016 and 2017. The article unpicks somatic perspectives on cultural embodiment which informed the work, as well ideas of mobile cultural affiliation from Irish diaspora studies. I explore changing women’s roles in Ireland across generations and what the idea of practicing at home might mean in different times and locations, whether through moving, writing, baking, making crafts or hosting events. The latter concept of hosting supported me to engage people with the exhibition, and also stimulated a wider dialogue about migration.
