Shifting Identity / 2020
This project aims to portray the hidden narratives of the post-soviet landscape in the Czech Republic. The video collages and projections in the digital gallery revolve around a cultural shift around the revolution of 1989 and explore changes in culture, national identity, decay and erased history. Each collage contains a short description under the information button. My place of residence, as well as my family home in the eastern part of the country, provided a case study for this project. The contrast between these two locations; one fairly western and developed and one which almost seems to be stuck in time, allowed a sort of time travel to occur through physical movement.
What does it mean to learn a new culture, and how is that reflected in our most simple, everyday habits?
