What does connect us? When do we feel a difference? What is the human in a very beginning?
The main source of my works these questions. They are investigated in issues of psychology, culture, and citizenship. Such kind of factors like race, religion, culture, and etc. are making us feel different but, a human has to realize his own existence. These factors make us realize Other. Among this factors, we start to sense Self/Other. By the quest of differences and sameness, the vision can be changed. My goal to find the thing that connects human in a very beginning. But in my works, I’m not trying to show just only factors and influences. It is a call to journey into your soul to feel the sameness that we trying to reverse into the difference.
In my work, I’m collected different place in one room. To showed how other people live at the same time as you literally. And make people fell, the think about others culture, life etc. (Sofiya Ahadowa)
