Aniko Herbert aka Haniko
Otthonka // Little Home
13×18 cm, paper collage series, 2020
In this visual quarantine-diary Herbert is not writing down her thoughts but rather visually records those states of mind that she experiences during the unintended confinement. In Herbert’s words the Otthonka series is ‘’the reduced experience of freedom: where you must ‘go out inside!’” Looking at her works helps us examine how we changed during this short but defining period. Did the time spent in the confinement of our home leave any noticeable trace on us? Did we realize who we actually are, or were we at all locked in with ourselves?
