Artist’s Statement I’ve been exploring the issue of home in my work for the past five years. The image of a house evokes complex emotions, both personal and cultural. Its simple shape is a powerful icon that represents intensely private experiences as well as communal hopes and values. The title of my contribution, and one inspiration for it, comes from the following passage in And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos by art critic John Berger: “Originally home meant the center of the world-not in a geographical but in an ontological sense. Without a home at the center of the real, one was not only without shelter but also lost in non-being, in unreality. Without a home, everything was fragmentation.”
