The Dilemma of Exile
This work concerns cultural displacement and a constant search for identity. At the age of 13 I moved from Poland to England which was a traumatic moment in my life. It has allowed the introduction of a multi cultural point of view to my practice. This continuous battle between two voices and personalities has resulted in the notion of a departure from self. The images I have created have a sense of nostalgia and contemplation, questioning the idea of self and belonging. Dark and cool tones are present to emphasise and reflect my state of mind. The use of the figure and objects was essential for me to portray the inner conflict and perplexity of having two identities.
