ARTIST STATEMENT: Connecting different mental and physical spaces, shifting borders and concepts of identity, my practice serves as a biography of an immigrant, in his/her search for cultural integration and adaptation. Led by a necessity, traveling from place to place, morphing ideologies and cultural differences, the physical and mental experience of being in transition directly informs the content of my work.
My most resent work explores ideas on historical relevance in connection to self and space. I am intertwining images from two different societies, drawn from personal memories combined with a sociological research. The repetitive representation of a single object or historical figure or a passenger conveys shifting states of escape/confinement in collective/individual territories. These elements portray an illusion of environment, depicting a deceptive, liminal space.
