Sanctuary brings together the works of Noemi de Bruijn and Julya Hajnoczky, encouraging visitors to challenge their idealized notion of ‘home’. By drawing on nostalgia felt for lost or absent homes, the show presents ideas of displacement and belonging in the spaces we occupy, as well as our interactions with vast landscapes. The works by de Bruijn and Hajnoczky can be seen as meditations on the connection between humans and nature, and on the ways in which we attempt to control and codify nature while holding ourselves as separate. In our modern world, humans often take sanctuary in nature, and the beneficial effects of this are widely known. Here, representations of the environments that aid in self-exploration and self-awareness, both inward and outward, are brought together for contemplation. By combining de Bruijn’s works on paper and canvas with Hajnoczky’s sculpture, photography and embroidered works, Sanctuary presents a sort of Cabinet of Curiosity for visitors to take refuge in and explore. The intimacy and interaction of these imagined realms connects the viewer to the universal human experience of longing for and seeking sanctuary from our world.
