Intro
(...) I tried to remember the ambience and materials related to the state of homesickness. This collection was influenced by longing after traditions as well as national and personal heritage.

Homesickness is... absolutely nothing. Fifty percent of the people in the world are homesick all the time… You don't really long for another country. You long for something in yourself that you don't have, or haven't been able to find.
John Cheever, The Stories of John Cheever (1978)

Homesickness for me is quite ordinary condition, which has not much to do with sadness or anguish. When talking about home we are not always meaning the current home, often we talk about some other remarkable places we have stayed or lived in. Certain aesthetics, traditions, heritage and social values are characteristic to home. Longing after them allows us to reconstruct past and improve or disremember it according to our own desire. I tried to remember the ambience and materials related to the state of homesickness. This collection was influenced by longing after traditions as well as national and personal heritage.
