I will be your image 2007

To make the installation I will be Your Image, I used photographs from my parents’ family album. Most of the photographs, which I remember from my early childhood, were taken before I was born. Some photographs seemed enigmatic because I couldn’t recognize the people they portrayed, and I remember being fascinated by them from an early age. These photos suggested a private sphere that could illuminate moments from my parents’ biography, giving me hope that I will be able to fill these gaps of knowledge about their life one day.
The other photographs were of family relatives; I found these photos emotionally reassuring, as they filled me with the confidence of belonging.
