Strange Familiarity

Strange and familiar are interlinked and conflicting. The myriad change can be confused but the essence keeps constant. Navel, which is one of the most familiar parts of our body, is the source of my inspiration. It once was a connection between us and our mothers, who bring us to this world. In addition, it builds a passage to my inner being, just like the dialog with myself between the inside and outside, past and future, strange and familiar. The collection depicts the experience of perceiving the world and knowing oneself from human contacts and self-reflection. We are connected und we are also individual. Given birth from the basic shape every piece is unique.
