The Refugee II’ is based on the struggle of Syrian refugees who flee the conflict, continuing their lives in small tents in sprawling refugee camps. The headpiece is made, using Syrian carpet ‘hasir’ technique and paper rush and it represents the need for protection, almost covering the wearer for 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.
