In Homework, Fleur Khani describes the house she grew up in: half Persian, half Flemish. Her mother is a European doctor and her father a Persian writer. While she builds a home, Fleur takes you through the different rooms in the universe of both her parents. They have a different library, a different taste in interior design, different views on religion and the world. The questions that every growing child faces are amplified by these cultural differences under the same roof. Where do I belong? Why don’t my parents agree? Am I a stranger? Homework is an honest attempt by a young artist to draw the outlines of a continuously evolving identity.
