The exotic, the foreign, the unexplored: aesthetic strategies to create a parallel between the nineteenth century and today, driven by a desire to address a situation of the present as the direct result of the past. Starting from elements that centre on my own life, I come to the much more global notion of neocolonialism. I start from my personal history, but move towards the global problem of power relations between the north and south and to a reflection on capitalism. My day-to-day life is governed by a multitude of transactions, exchanges, and connections at a planetary level. I would not be who I am without the phenomenon of globalization. (YH)
