ASSIA means patience, courage and strength. I don’t even know how to describe the word properly but I always feel like I need someone to tell me assia. I’ve created a straight relation between my family and the world in two opposite moments in history. The beginning of everything, Pangea and that idealised relation between mum and dad and between all continents but especially Africa and Europe. And also the chaotic and broken world in which we live right now, where two closely connected artefacts remain separated. Dad is Africa. Mum is Europe. Africa is peace, love, unity and having fun. Europe is a close mind and racist prejudices.
