Face by Deborah Jack

Deborah Jack's current project has evolved into an exploration of the difference/similarity between home/homing.  The images deal with the fracturing of home space that occurs in the Diasporic body.  The issues of globalization such as the crossing of borders, the need for constant identification; the search continues to traumatize the "othered" body.  However, fissures that exist between the ruptured spaces, which are evidence of trauma, are for me also sites of healing.
