Puzzled by constant dreams and irrational fear of not finding the way back home, Clara Quintela created the series CASA, where she registers clues and pieces of memories from her personal story in abstract maps of where she had been since she left home.
Clara questions the idea of home, confronting the childish search for nurturing and protection with the challenge of adulthood, immigration to another country and the "then and now".
