“Gihan´s images insinuate, they do not explain; some come soft, others blow. Her work focuses on universal human feelings, on those inherited and deep-rooted instincts, finding beauty where apparently there is none. In her projects, opposites bond and coexist; tenderness and violence, vulnerability and power, beauty and horror, the romantic with the wild.”
The idea of survival is a persistent statement in my projects; the struggle for belonging, to attach and detach, life as a constant transformation between its own contradictions. This exploration starts from the documentary and the imaginary, alternating reality with fiction and the autobiographic.
I looking for images to invent more questions than answers. The lack of information triggers imagination, turning those indefinite images into emotional landscapes, a transformation of the physical into the psychological.
