Mom & Dad Slideshow
video projection, 15 min. loop of 15 photographs, variable dimensions.
I managed to seize my parent’s holiday photo album from the 1970s. The red album that I looked at over and over again during my childhood and adolescence. I tried to realize what was it that had made me stare at these photographs for hours on end. Perhaps it was an attempt to find the reasons behind the collapse of their marriage. Perhaps it was an attempt of recognition. Who were they then, who are they now, and how am I an outcome of this union were some of the questions that triggered the beginning of this work.
