At the origins. 2020
What hides in the mysterious depth of early memories might reappear before one’s eyes in a dream. Even when the eyes are shut, our sight may be surprisingly broadly open to flashbacks.
In my project "At the origins" I establish dreamlike and mysterious sceneries of my native village by examining the concept of home and belonging. The vision of home, which is rooted in my childhood memories, is some kind of personification of the landscape, where you definitely will return in reality or in your memory. These photographs exhibit familiar sights of my childhood. They remind me a dream which helps to reveal the meaning of a homeland as a peculiar microcosm of a human being; a homeland as a sacral place in our consciousness.
