The initial idea for the works you see in this exhibition was formed in 2017, with the first part, entitled ‘Things and Places’, displayed at Hoor Gallery in 2018. Even though they might seem different in terms of form and theme, the works present in this collection, all created in the past few years, speak of a common feeling with regard to familiar conditions, a sensation we continue to experience.
