Honda Terjuman’s work revels in the stressful and painful processes of achieving stability in the midst of turbulent personal and political situations. In her sculptural objects, the symbol of the tree emerges as both a biological system and a metaphor that suggests the multi-rooted influences of love and abandonment. Cultural conditions, once eradicated, become a transformative space in which the artist resists and reacts to external pressures. Terjuman’s practice acknowledges the hyper connectivity and heterogeneity of the artist’s own de-territorialised world.
Her work has been exhibited around the world including Marrakech, Morocco; Lisbon, Portugal; Dubai, the United Arab Emirates; Barcelona, Spain; Tunis, Tunisia; and Paris, France.
