Starting from the theme of integration, the prformance is a “presentation” of the process Iwent through.
From fearing of being different, not being accepted , the fear of losing your own identity ,being invizible in a new society to the moment of finding the path , the acceptance .
The video projection is made using my drawings and fragments of my artworks made during the first 3 years in The Nederlands. Retrospective I realised that I drew my own roots .
Whether you have emigrated to follow your love, looking for work and a better life, or just curious; the step to leave your family, friends and birthplace is an emotional process. Growing new roots is another step that also involves trial and error, sadness and hope.
