Artist Statement

In a conscious or subconscious way I try to perceive that my efforts are finding out what is happening around me. Besides, we have constantly dominated by some situations  that is not created by us and we are not liable for our irrational situation of life. In this situations, never can I deny the flow of words which is flowing through thoughts and  images incessantly on my mind, such as plethora of people, seeking safety, arranged or not, why vehicle, transportation, transporting, recondition, wastage, vibration, own land, open or locked, globe, global,  vibrating, house, resettlement, homogeneous, refugee, exile, emigrant, discrimination, historical diversity, intervention, emotional trauma, ethnic, ethnic  cleansing, mental health, why, what, where etc..

The voices of exile have become even more intense in the 20th century. Existing exile and exiled world have been spread world-wide. Today’s civilized time is called the era of exile because of its arrangement of warfare, is flowing through imperialism and world-wide governance in totalitarian political theory. Era of the transitional human is the era of mass migration. Today’s exile and migration in recent events are not a paradigm or a sense of humanity. Exiled, refugee, emigrant, immigrant, these words are different forms of exile. The word refugee of twentieth century and the form of exile is exactly the same. Moreover,the word ‘refugee’ is a word that reminds group of innocent people .Now  the exorcism of this exile is being reflected  vastly on our land. But the term “exiled” is a little bit different, with which the loneliness and intolerance related issues are more relevant. Deportation is such a thing that not only awakens strange feelings for the realm of thought but also rises embarrassment past as well as experience the horrors are awaken. Deportation is an indefensible crack, which separates a man from his soil forever and also tear out entities from its existence.
