— Recently I found myself existing in between of racial and social conflicts. I ran from an aggressor state without looking back only to find myself in a defending country feeling lack of safeness. And while there are many ways of making yourself feel safe – one of them stands out for me the most.
I want to take my viewer right to the start of it – to the birth. To two moments that embody safeness, two moments when safeness forms by mother’s everlasting love & tenderness.
First is inside the womb, where child is protected from the outer world literally by mother’s body itself. Second – is a moment right after the birth, when child is placed on mother’s breast. It’s that first contact and the heartbeat that child hears yet again.
Through the colour palette I show all the warmth of this moments. Imagine feeling the sun on your skin for the first time and you look at it, with your eyes almost closed – that’s the feeling I want to deliver and that’s the reason I blur figures and add this luminescent fog.
