“A home embodies traditions and cultures; it becomes the basis of self-identity, linked to the memories shared within the space.
My work aims to explore the breaking down and fluidity of one’s self-identity through cultural experiences. Feelings of homeliness and displacement – the longing to escape and the desire to belong – are represented by different views of the home.
Stranded in limbo, through the imperfections of identity’s destruction and reformation, the feeling of never being able to truly belong to any culture lingers.”
