sans patrie

We were asked us to explore the iconic phrase 'sans patrie/without homeland' from a new artistic perspective.

The phrase once expressed a way of rebellion, defined as 'he who has legally no patria, or denies all patria'. This concept is particularly important to Sarah, who, as a migrant herself, specialises in the field of plural identities, migration and m├ętissage.

Believing that in current times, 'sans patrie' could finally express a way of being free from nationalistic attachment, as we 
move beyond the concept of one nation-one belonging, through the acceptance of cohesive and diverse transnational identities.
