Everyone has, at some point, packed a bag to take with them on a journey; but how many of us have packed a bag that will hold all we have left in this world? When you’re forced to leave your home, what do you bring with you? What will fit into the rucksack or bag that you, yourself must carry for such a long way? What size is this bag, how much does it weigh? How much can you carry; physically, psychologically?
‘This I can Carry’ is the second in the series of project examining Abraham Maslow’s ‘Hierarchy of Need’ theory. The publication was shown in public spaces in galleries around Ireland,USA and The Netherlands for World Refugee Day: 20th June, 2017.
