Calculating the Price of Exile
In 2009, the year marking the tenth anniversary of my exile, I started working on this project about longing for home. I was then based in Stockholm, Sweden. I began by keeping a diary, which eventually I summarised into a memoir-type text. The diary and memoir were the inspiration for a film comparing my cultural experiences and observations.
From the gendered-female perspective, I explored three identities from three countries I lived in: Georgia, Sweden and Israel. The film is located inside the sculpture; the observers can place their heads within the head to watch the film, interpolated into performing the impossibility of complete identification.
