Curatorial statement

In the heart of our human experience lies an eternal quest for a place to call home, not merely in the physical sense, but in the depths of our souls. “Where Do I Go When I Want Home” explores this poignant journey through a rich tapestry of artistic expression, drawing inspiration from Zoe Modiga’s evocative song lyrics and the intricate pathways of self-discovery.

Life often presents us with obstacles that leave us feeling adrift, seeking solace and belonging amidst the chaos. This exhibition celebrates the resilience of the human spirit as it navigates through moments of profound desolation, finding solace and rhythm in the quietness of introspection. Each artwork serves as a testament to the transformative power of embracing one’s inner journey, allowing it to flow through the soul like a healing river, dismantling barriers, and revealing hidden truths along the way.

Yet, amidst the trials and tribulations, there are moments of sheer elation when we feel a divine connection, a sense of belonging that transcends the physical realm. Through a diverse array of mediums and perspectives, “Where Do I Go When I Want Home” captures these fleeting moments of euphoria, inviting viewers to explore the depths of their own spiritual connections and collective consciousness.

This exhibition is a mosaic of experiences, a kaleidoscope of emotions, inviting viewers to embark on their quest for inner peace and understanding. It is a reminder that home is not merely a destination, but a state of being—a sanctuary nestled within the chambers of our hearts. As you journey through these artistic landscapes, may you find resonance, inspiration, and perhaps, a glimpse of home within yourself.
