grandmother’s handcrafted doily, installation
We are born as a part of a preexisting chain. Each link, is co-dependent on every previous and every following one. The bond is strong and the rupture is almost impossible. The links are added in a slow pace, allowing the last one to be immersed in a vast time. In a period where one of its hand remains in the unknown and the other is tightly bound with the link behind it. The free hand seeks furiously to grab something, something to determine its very own existence.
In this effort, an endless quest is triggered, for the roots, the ancestries, the memories and experiences, but also for the personal longings, the values and basically, the final destination of the individual. A conflict which is defined by intense moments of acceptance and rejection. As long as the need for escape grows, the anticipation of return will intensify too, bringing this internal “warlike” situation at the stake of reconciliation or demolition.
