series of photographs, 2018
Home Seack is one of the chapters in my ongoing research which brings together materialization of memory and physicality of photography.
The very common state of coexistence in several places at once, both physically and virtually, became a subject of my study which I explore in a variety of forms. Home Seack is a series of staged compositions with objects and places encountered during the stay on the island of Brač. Motives are abstract associations I have with the island and represent my idea of home.
Summers are when I actually go back home and switch back to Croatian state of mind. There is this feeling I have every time I arrive on Brač. I feel relieved. With the series I’m evoking this same feeling again. But, being far away from the island turns relief into homesickness, which in my case becomes homeseackness.
