A Domestic Matter   (2013)

“As an embodiment of difference, the stranger represents the doubtful existence and dubious truth of what is not spatially present, of what cannot be verified at first hand. Yet the stranger is nonetheless here, present, and thus throws the doubtful and flickering quality of absence and non-existence back into the faces of those insiders in the local community, throwing into question the sanctity of presence.” (Rob Shields) Whether living or inanimate, elements in my work are more than often where they do not belong. As a result of constant relocation, I started investigating spaces in between the inside and the outside as well as the outcomes of migration. Through my project "A Domestic Matter", I unveil parts of the scattered mind of a migrant while creating a substitute for the feeling of homeliness in accordance with my understanding and experience.
