The zero gravity project is a collection of paintings that depict the artist's feelings of insecurity, loss, fear, and embarrassment in response to being forcibly cut off from their homeland. The paintings are presented as an autobiographical diary, with expressive brushstrokes, doodles, and barely readable writing. The installation features three paintings hanging on invisible ropes against a deep black background, creating a sense of weightlessness and erasing boundaries between the floor, ceiling, and walls. The layering of paints in the paintings represents the unstable and rapid pace of everyday life, capturing only bits and pieces of the artist's experience in a chaotic yet ordered way.
A series of digital prints were created by using a combination of hand-drawn sketches and digital drawing techniques. The prints appear to capture moments of anxiety, falling, and frustration, which are depicted through a variety of movement-stabilizing techniques. The prints show stages of how unconscious emotions and memories can become trapped within our bodies and affect us over time.
By layering different elements together, the prints convey a complex and multi-dimensional view of the sensations, which are often difficult to express in words alone. They also convey a sense of the physicality of these feelings, as well as the way they can become embedded within our bodies and impact our movement and behavior.
The prints become a powerful exploration of how our emotions and experiences are onterwined; how they can continue to affect us long after the original event has passed. They offer a unique and thought-provoking perspective on the nature of human experience and the complexity of our emotional lives.
