On the Tip of One's Tongue
2022 - ongoing
The homeland I left and the place where I am at the moment—both have an aggressive war with neighboring countries. What I observe, what is coming from the outside, and the one within moves, takes shape, and falls apart.

"On the tip of one's tongue" is an idiom that describes the situation when you think you know something and are ready to utter it but unable to do it at the moment.

To see the world means comprehending what we see; for this, we use a language system. Verbal constructions act as a means of systematization of the world. What comes instead of utterance where there is no language? Wandering in uncertainty, in this ambivalent zone, you cannot find an answer, and you cannot form a query as well. Uncertainty is used by the authorities as a tool of control and as a deforming narrative. This narrative is constructed through the generation of events — authentic or fictitious, past or present, physical or imaginary.

The series consists of images visualizing the limbo between the perceived world and the real, unknowable. In this case, uncertainty becomes the only way to understand the depicted reality and to form a response to an anxiety-ridden environment.
