Where is home

In my art practice, I study the connection between personal and collective memory and the way it is inscribed in our bodies and spaces which we live in. Space seems to share some characteristics with the body; space, as well as the body, testifies to lives, emotions, complex game of identity and relationships; and the traces accumulated over time are constantly recorded within the body, and it becomes a palimpsest. I use the memory so that what is gone I try to deconstruct and then reconstruct in a new way, leaving new traces and new meanings, exploring the boundaries of personal and collective, and on the boundaries of the documentary. While I collect documentary materials and translate them into artwork, it is important to me to keep in mind that at the same time I am both, the observer and the participant, (...). I build my work organically, they grow with time and with the relation to the people and space I work with. I experience them as something left of a certain process, whether personal or exploratory.
