Women in Film & Photography 2023 Exhibition

This is my performance to counter what is happening.
There are many things in which we aren’t given a choice.
We have to accept what we have.
I carry myself in my womb to be reborn again and again,
In order to leave all the pain and trauma which was born together with me.
Even though we can’t choose, I wish to have the chance to be reborn as who I would like to be.
This is the process of our nature as well.
It is the path through which life comes.
It is also the beginning of emotional trauma.
This is the beginning of the war.
This is a genocide.
This is racial discrimination.
This is also happiness.
This is also peace.
This is also love-kindness.
This is a unification.
It’s alive again.
It’s a healing process.
This is the cycle for everything.
