Home from ‘Home’
Since 2014, I have developed a series of work, which encompasses the relationship between physical scars and the memories, stories behind them and how they help indirectly with the hidden identity of the human form. This has been further developed to the current project, which explores self-identity and belonging through the space and time from a landscape perspective.
In this project, the emotional connection to “Home” is the basic and principal line, which embodies the entire work. When we are away from our homeland, we start to question who am I? Where am I? However, nature has the power to bond us together. A person’s emotional connection with the same or different landscape is to feel the sense of belonging in the world. Landscapes also can be seen as a cultural construct in which human memories inhere.
All the landscapes were captured in different time zones and countries. Regardless of the distance between all the locations, some similarities no matter from an emotional or a physical sense can be told among them. They are the duplication of the reality, however, they are also the duplication of our ideal space.
We all have the memories towards home and the experience of being away from home. We all travel and attempt to make new lives, fresh starts, however can we really lose that connection which binds us to our original home.
