“noi” (us)

“… the foreigner lives within us: he is the hidden face of our identity… By recognizing him
within ourselves we are spared detesting him in himself.” Julia Kristeva
In the modern world the phenomenon of migration has become an issue of great significance.
It has the power to challenge and provoke the sociopolitical and cultural sphere of the
present and also to question and re-evaluate national identity. The work speculates on the
relationship between the self and the other, us and them. It provokes the viewer to find the
courage to face the mirror and acknowledge himself as a foreigner in “them” (loro).
