something borrowed, 
something red

Living abroad for most of my adulthood, I became worried about losing connection with Turkmenistan and Turkmen culture — significant parts of my identity. 

Addressing identity in the decolonial framework of the former Soviet republics, this project aims to understand the place I was born and raised and how its historical changes have shaped me.

This long-term project conceptually consists of several parts and is based on personal experience, Turkmen history and Turkmen mythology. 

2020 — ongoing (work in progress).
