Fragments II

What the map cuts up, the story cuts across

2019 - ongoing


In this work I document the present situation of four unrecognized territories, giving a more personal testimony to the multi-layered histories of these forgotten entities. It is a complex topic involving international actors whose active/passive approach, determines how these entities continue to coexist. As a travelogue, while strolling, riding or biking I have collected stories of people whose collective trauma is not only a trace left on their experiences of war, but also the kind that remains embedded in landscapes that continue to bear witness to what’s left of the past. Through a further exploration of the subject I research how memories effect the understanding and reflection on what had happened, shaping the way in which people identify with their everyday realities, that are often frozen and in conflict.
