Stories matter. We experience an array of emotions through stories and learn to experience the world through another’s perspective. Stories connect us as humans and let us empathize with one another. This exhibition follows a story of a girl in different stages of her life where she is experiencing feelings of loss, loneliness, displacement and the hopelessness that comes with them. She is fully aware of us and finds herself gazing back at our reflection.
