Publisher's Description

Signed copies are signed by Julia Borissova.

'Home is...' contains 32 messages from different people in response to my reflections on how the concept of home is changing today in the face of the limitations of the pandemic.

'The main theme of my artistic practice is the investigation of the concept of 'home', for a long time I have been trying to look at it from different points of view.

When this disaster with the coronavirus epidemic happened, I thought that this gives me the opportunity to return to the question 'What is a home?' in the current situation, and invited everyone to take part in this project.

Since March 2020, I have received more than 30 answers to my question - people from different countries wrote to me.

Maintaining quarantine was not easy for everyone, and I wanted to create this book to bring together the voices of people from all over the world, thereby showing that despite isolation, we can hear each other that we are not alone.

I asked everyone who wanted to take part in the project to write their own text in their native language by hand, and also send me some images that are emotionally connected with the text. The text could be of any length and shape. The most important thing was for the participants to write what they think about their home, has anything changed in their idea of ​​a “home” during this time of quarantine?

The book also contains my drawings. When this period of isolation began, painting helped me get through the stress. While drawing, I thought about those people who are far from me experiencing similar emotions, and these drawings were a kind of response to the received texts. 

All texts, handwritten by the authors, have English translations. The circulation is printed in a printing house, I make the binding myself.' — Julia Borissova
