dilemma explores the concepts of home, identity and memory thru the lens of exile.
As Edward Said wrote in his essay Reflections on Exile, " Exile is strangely compelling to think about but terrible to experience, it is the unhealable rift forced between a human being and a native place, between the self and its true home: its essential sadness can never be surmounted.” dilemma looks at the multiple layers of this rift that is both geographical and temporal – between homeland and present location but also between past and present.
