"Every time I go home, the potatoes in my mother's cupboard are sprouting." This series of work is based on this poetic phrase that captures the concept of my current work: that I am no longer home, and there is a sadness and longing for a place that no longer exists and relationships that are forever altered. It is about my struggle to recreate that, the tension I experience in the displacement and disjuncture, and the anxiety of living up to family expectations.
