EXODUS: I SEE MYSELF IN YOU

Inspired by Paradise (“Pardes” in Hebrew and “Jannat” in Urdu/Arabic), Siona has created a series that  discusses and questions the pursuit of Paradise. Recent history and news have  made her question why humans pursue and strive for perfection and paradise. At what cost do they want to attain it and why do they seek that ultimate perfect home? The artist contemplates the thousands of images in the news of people displaced from their homes and sees refugees roaming the world in a constant search for their lost paradise, or in a quest for a new one.
