Through Your Eyes is an anthem to my mother. I have never stopped to be intrigued by her sight of the world. Now 33 years old, I still ask her to describe the way she sees without her glasses. A blurry and spatial world she has access to… a brush of colours with undefined edges and shifting depths as she moves around. Always keen to know so that I could understand, imagine, project myself in this space with new intriguing laws of perception.

On Our Way To The Border
It does not matter which one: physical, administrative or psychological, borders can often seem insurmountable. The road leading to the transcendence of this obstacle is scattered with moments, impressions, places and landscapes which work as landmarks, portals both keeping us prisoner of the feelings contained in a passed memory, but which also holds the power to propel us passed these times of turmoil.

For On Our Way To The Border, I allowed myself to look back at these moments which felt like corner stones of the four-year-long journey that my partner and I shared towards his Canadian permanent residency status.
