We always find ourselves in a larger community and unconsciously feel the necessity to gain approval to belong to it. Eventually it can take over your life in an obsessive way. I start by questioning this approval, because I believe that this questioning is not for a community called a “nation”, but rather for individuals. Throughout my work, I think about how individuals manifest themselves in relation to this questioning.
