The connection one feels to place is an abstract notion, often spoken of in terms of memories, habits, rituals, and experiences. It is elusive, yet always present. Home Ground addresses the struggles associated with navigating geo-political barriers, and explores ways in which identity is shaped by one's relationship with a particular geography.

The works presented in this exhibition have relevance beyond their individual contexts, touching upon themes and experiences that resonate on a global scale.
