HOMELANDS

2019

2 screen installation

 

We are Lyubov Matyunina and Konstantin Guz, we are visual artist and the family. We left our motherland Russia behind and rooted in the new country, the Netherlands, which became our homeland. This experience inspired us for creating such a project telling about the concept of home, language and identity. 
Is it possible to keep your identity in this globalized and multinational world? How has our perception of home changed?
The multimedia installation involves conversations with our parents and photographs from family archives. Looking into the personal history of two families you can see how it reflects the universal history of every family.
