…To start the new life on the new place in completely different cultural medium and legal environment is not easy. Sometimes the mental adaptation takes more time and efforts then the physical one. “To go home” – is it exact destination or just the imaginary place where you feel protected, safe, beloved or at least not aggressed?…
Home is an artistic project based on contemporary art, which aims to help humanitarian associations present in Luxembourg. The exhibition brings together 18 artists from various countries. Each one offers a different interpretation of what “home” is as a physical or spiritual place. It is carried out under the patronage of the Red Cross in Luxembourg, Mir wëlleniech ons Heemecht weisen asbl, Internations and The Foundry.
The project is realized by the organizers and curators: Oksana Polyanska, Claudia Bargagli Petrucci and Nadina Faljic.
The event is in the form of an online exhibition and a presentation in place:

“Home” can mean different things to different people, but in all cases it is the place each one of us holds dear.
HOME (for me) is sacred just like an ancient tree – its roots run deep and strong; if it so happens that you leave it, the thread that ties you to it may brake; you can restore it, however a knot will always remain. But life is stronger and you can try accepting a helping hand.
HOME is the place which tells the story of our roots – the place where we were born and from which we started our development. We know quite well, that no venturing into the vast unknown world can take place without a stable notion of the place we started from and the awareness of who we are.
Those who аre faced with the challenge of finding a new home may want to remember the words of the German-Swiss poet, novelist, painter and avid traveler Hermann Hesse in his novel “Demian”: “one never reaches home, but wherever friendly paths intersect the whole world looks like home for a time.”
Selected artworks of each artist can be seen at the following venue:
