For many immigrants, the concept of home spans multiple physical locations, cultures, and languages. Turkish-American artist Beliz Iristay celebrates her three homes in this installation: San Diego (left), Mexico (center) and Turkey (right). Beliz’ multinational lifestyle is reflected in her ceramics, which are created using Turkish techniques with clay from Mexican soil. In this work, Beliz combines traditional and contemporary symbols sourced from her three homes to create a style that uniquely represents her lived experiences.
