Through the incorporation of semiotic elements and her body of work, “Illusion of home, as a memory,” Nicole Economides explores feelings of nostalgia, home, and the quest for one’s identity while traversing the Atlantic bidirectionally. Her artistic practice sheds light on the intersections of memory, migration, and identity, delving into both personal experiences and cultural signifiers. It presents a nuanced reflection on the impact of economic migration on individual and collective identities, exploring the intricate interplay of language and culture in shaping distinct experiences of belonging. Her paintings serve as a reminder to spectators of both longing and recollection. The presentation unveils Economides’ latest body of work, rooted in photographs her grandmother sent during the late 1960s and early 1970s, which serve as poignant mementos.
