HOME SWEET HOME
30 min, HD, stereo
Is home a place, a space, a feeling, a practice and/or an active state of being in the world? - Shelley Mallett
Home Sweet Home is a collaborative project that explores the idea of “feeling at home” in the nowadays multicultural world from the point of view of 22 young people, each of them with totally different backgrounds.
In 2018 I moved to Finland. Since then, I didn’t get the chance to visit my home country. What started out as a personal and nostalgic project about homesickness became a collaborative work that gathers people from different parts of the world who are willing to share their experience regarding home and being away from it.
The video work is composed of two parts of 15 minutes each. PART 1 gathers 12 people from Thailand, Canada, Finland, Vietnam, USA, UK, China, Albania and Romania who have been living in Nepal, Thailand, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Croatia, Sweden, Greece and Japan.
