Traces of belonging

The project aims to explore ideas of home, and taking refuge. The meaning of place in an age of migration and immigration, of moving here but coming from there, the meaning of home as an internal orientation, one that we guide to remain on our own course of belonging. The artist is interested in looking at journeys of displacement starting from her family history in Palestine, to their present journeys of refuge in Syria and at the idea of belonging to a place that may no longer exist.
