This body of work is an attempt to portray absurd dynamics between my family members. A wedding, numerous fights followed by divorce and then remarrying, is not an expression of unconditional love but rather a result of constantly seeking comfort. It is a choice of assiduously earned material possessions over possible, more fulfilling, emotional relationships.

The place previously called ‘Home’ now brings suffocating feelings of stagnation and sensation of something broken rather than worth embracing. It is a response to things that matter but cannot be changed without the willingness to let go. The project is still ongoing.
