On the Other Side of the Ocean

Water is a metaphor for transition and change in this sculptural and video installation which tackles the themes of human striving, migration and exile.

« In this sculptural and video installation, which tackles the themes of human survival, migration and exile, water is a metaphor for transition and change. It demonstrates the state of the many immigrants who have left their native country by the ocean, which has taken them to new horizons and new discoveries. […] For me, the ocean represents a division between Canada and my country (Serbia) and the bridge joins the two worlds, and brings me back and forth, and I question myself, which one is home and is home outside or within me, said Perunovich» Sudbury Star, May 21, 2005
