Perteneser delves into the sense of belonging that arises from the place we call «home». Emanating from within, the perception of home involves a process of self-discovery. The 2020 pandemic caught me far away from my country. It magnified my feelings of estrangement and made me wonder how I can eventually form part of a foreign place.
