Homing: Navigating the notions of home 2017

Masters Exhibition - Gus Gallery Stellenbosch

Artist statement

In this body of work, I investigate the complexities of home through the exploration of the embodiment of architecture, both human and non-human. I see the notion of home as a multifarious, visceral experience, therefore my investigation is informed by my own lived experience. I investigate the notion of home in terms of locale, history, identity and memory.
