Tania LaCaria - Same Place

Same Place

To be in the same place is “a gift, a blessing, a comfort,” they said. To be in the same place “is stable, safe, secure, ever-lasting,” they persisted. 


But not for her. She’s a change-addict, adverse to the static, the stagnant, the dormant. 

To be in the same place means more of the same, same, same; the same that was once good enough, great even, isn’t nearly enough anymore. 

The same walls that once brought her peace are now barriers. She wonders how they can all be so content staying in the same place. She realizes she is different, she was never meant to stay, never meant for sameness.


DISPLACEMENT - Collection 

The act of being removed, displaced, rehoused, relocated; to result in a state of disorganization, confusion, elation, inspiration, disruption. 

This collection explores the post-adrenaline lucidity that settles in after having been rearranged, moved, shifted, altered, either in place and body or spiritually in heart and mind, or in most cases, both. 

The artist is asking questions about what results in the heart, mind and psyche after having been physically displaced, as she observes members of her community be un-housed and re-housed, either by choice or by circumstance. In the artist’s personal case, she is aware of her position of privilege as she seeks to move locations and displace herself as a form of empowerment and inspiration; whereas the same experience of displacement for those who have not elected to do so is disorienting, exhausting and draining. Displacement is an exploration of the power behind intention, the divide between social classes and the way conversations about displacement either empower or oppress others based on their socio economic circumstances.
