“BEING HOME” is inspired by urban settings generally recognized for dark contrasts of cement, pavements, and decline of greeneries. I revolve on the theme of philosophical conflicts, continuously questioning on various spheres of realities. Due to life experiences, this work allows me to constantly asses my personal wellbeing, inviting the viewer to deeply examine their very own opposing thoughts, as projected by the mirrors in the installation,” says Sollano.
