There are so many factors that influence our personal relationships with place and identity. It’s barely ever enough for most people to say “I am (insert singular national identity)” or “I’m from (insert place of origin)” and neatly sum up their story of origin, without batting an eyelid. More often and not, these answers are fraught with contradiction, complexity, personal and political history, and many times, a hugely revealing part of ourselves - which we sometimes just don’t want to get into with a complete stranger. This issue aims to fully explore these types of answers, to get a sense of the diversity, and perhaps commonality, of these experiences, and as always, try and bring them together, combining the work of artist and writers, into one cohesive whole.
About the pieces: I don’t consider it a series, but more of a triptych, exploring my relationship with place and self. All the works were made by superimposing my own image against photographs of different places in Russia, progressing from being “intact” to completely disassembled (as stand-alone body parts) and the spaces progress toward being abandoned and decayed. The intend to show how even though motherland is still part of my identity, it slowly dissolving and fading in its influence on what I am as an individual now. (I immigrated to Canada 24 years ago).
Drowned Self and Repainted Self were selected for publication.
