The home is directly related to the idea of fire. Nowadays the world is shaken by bellicose conflicts, the collapse of economic systems and forced migrations. In result, the concept of home is constantly being rethought.
Families disintegrate; trust and the elemental campfire as a reference point disappear. Consequently of such rupture, the individual rebuilds themselves and thus society morphs.
Like a patch work made up of squares, each adjoining piece is a new reality that interconnects with the next. You leave your old life to embrace a new world. Leaving behind your old skin, you mutate, transform and reborn.
The work was build with the interview with more than 12 people from different migrations background. Everyone here tell us their story, their struggle and their relation to the idea of home.
