Sometimes I Disappear 
2020 - ongoing

Within the rich tapestry of Georgian culture, the threads that connect generations are woven tightly, creating a deeply rooted network of traditions, values, and expectations. These threads passed down through time profoundly impact how we navigate our roles within the family unit and the larger society. 
The collective nature of Georgian society often places immense importance on maintaining family ties, making it challenging for individuals to carve out their paths distinct from those of their parents, it has to do with whether people's self-image is defined in terms of "I" or "We".  Here comes the struggle and guilt as most of the time I feel like "I" and not like "We". With this research/observation, I hope to find a balance between I and We, going through love, guilt, and self-discovery. 
Self-portraits help me see myself as a separate creature - the individual not associated with someone or something.
It does not matter how far you go, family threads will reach you and the struggle is not to be tightened up nor to cut them.
