The Refugee I’ based on struggle of Syrian refugees who flee the conflict, continuing their lives in small tents in sprawling refugee camps. Paper rush combined with Syrian carpet ‘hasir’ technique to represent the need for protection. The works almost cover the wearer to give a warm, therapeutic feeling.
Su’s work reflected her observation while she was in her hometown Antioch in South of Turkey where most of Syrian refugees reached in order to secure their lives. Her work mainly underline how those people’s built life destroyed and that results with loss of homes, land and belongings. Their continuation of lives will be in isolated societies by hoping to go back to their countries where they belong to.
