My project is a story about the culture and the home I grew up in. It talks about the hierarchy in my family and it puts the women in my life at the forefront of the stage. As a young woman who grew up in the Caucasian-patriarchal culture on one hand, and in a matriarchal home, on the other, I deal with the tension between the two, a tension that is present in my life.The carpet and the gold represent values of culture, status and intergenerational connection. I disassemble the carpet and reassemble, connecting with the gold and giving them a new identity, which expresses both, the gap and the connection between the generations.
