Between the Church and the Abyss


Disintegrating communities, redefined rural landscape, memories, family, faith, and uncertainty. The contemporary village image diverges from the stereotypes of impoverished, elderly laborers or an idealized countryside; instead, it embodies internal conflicts, an uncertain future, and a reality unrecognizable to outsiders' perception. Within rural families, previous generations instinctively passed on not only agricultural and farming knowledge, but also community values, village life, and local culture.

Today, this hereditary process is completely questionable and subversive. My generation (generation Z) is the first to occupy a decisive place in the outcome of this changing hereditary process. Current visual research explores the intergenerational dynamics in this period, focusing on the youth in order to explore the notion of village, village identity and home.
