It is like going away. Like going away and losing one’s way. Like going away, losing one’s way, and leaving a trace. Going away, losing the way, leaving the trace, turning around, looking back, finding oneself, out of line, out of space.

“Back as in backwards” is touching upon the things that stay behind our backs, those that we carry with us or leave behind. Moving along the lines of disorientation of the sense of home, we question how we are orientated as migrant bodies and how we arrive at the places we do, if we arrive at all.
