Upon fleeing Europe in the late 60s my Grandparents were faced with the option of moving to Canada or Australia.  They were told they’d be living in the forest if they chose Canada, my Grandpa does not like forests.  

This body of work examines stories and memorabilia from a personal past and applies them to my own modern experience.  Embracing a humorous undertone the work looks at a personal history in a private and public context.  Allowing for participation, I piece together an understanding of circumstances surrounding family history.  The work aims to evoke the memory of a past era by playing out an act of visual remembering.
