Changing Residence documents the conflicts and resolutions of a restless writer who has spent a lifetime travelling the world to document what he finds there. Michael Redhill has called Paina’s work “a celebration of homelands old and new,” but it is also a passionate, sometimes angry, social critique of the very concept of a ‘homeland.’ Changing Residence gathers in one place the trajectory of an artist who has remained curious, committed, and engaged with whatever ‘home’ he happens to land in.
