The Most Foreign Land, I
THE MOST FOREIGN LAND, I
Year: 2020 | Mix Media Self Portrait: photography, stitches, digital photo manipulation.
Self is in perpetual process. Crashed under the commodifying weight of the perfection obsessed societies, we got accustomed to ‘performing’ a reflection of our imagined ideal selves that is intact, coagulated and desperately fixed. We are pushed to continually self-optimise our selves that locks us in the purgatory feeling of never being enough. These 3 images were ‘progress checks’ for a ‘perfect’ final piece I wanted to conceive exploring the ‘foreign identity’ and they were never meant to be the actual work.
