li vir û wir,
here and over there,

[En] Li vir û wir is a first immersion in the diploma project, as a raw material. These images explore and show Kurdish landscape and captures people hospitality. The experience in the field allows to confront what is similar and different between here and over there, in diaspora and in Kurdistan. What remains and what disappears beyond borders?

[Fr] Li vir û wir est une première immersion dans le projet de diplôme, en tant que matière première. Ces images explorent et témoignent des paysages kurdes et capturent l’hospitalité des gens. L’expérience sur le terrain permet de confronter ce qui est similaire et différent entre ici et là-bas, entre en diaspora et au Kurdistan. Que reste-t-il et qu’est-ce qui disparaît par-delà les frontières?
