Where’s home? (2022)
Growing up as an Iranian-American woman and leading a nomadic lifestyle, Sona always struggled to find her own place among narrow concepts like “home” and “identity”. In fact, her particular experience outside of these concepts is what inspired the theme of her project at GlogauAIR. Where is home? Is it a place or is it a state of mind?
In the showcase she strives to create an environment where she feels most at home and at peace. For her, “feeling at home” means being close to nature, engaging in rituals such as gardening, meditating, practising yoga, and creating art.
Beauty, then, is Sona’s second mainstay. Beautify your mind and your body, align yourself with nature and find stillness in times of trouble and uncertainty: These ideals take life in Sona’s work. Where is home, if not a beautiful place? What is beauty, if not a place that we can call home? What can we do to connect to pure energies and cleanse ourselves, how can we find peace and tranquillity?
