The exhibited body of artwork constitutes of several overlapping narratives, manifest in varied artistic mediums, that unfold by means of a series of artistic revelations in dialogue with a fragmented, poetic manuscript of my late grandfather. Since he passed away when I was nearly fourteen years old, I have been left with a strong sense of loss. His diverse manuscript and artistic work, although insignificant for me at that time, has become of increasing important to me. By telling a story and re-imagining its narratives, I interpret in and through this personal archive. This field tries to recreate the possibility of a shared biography through an artistic dialogue.
