Memories of Ancestors

Giovanna Peel's avatar Giovanna Peel

The hanging is executed in modest and unsentimental materials (black metal and acrylic mesh, black cotton thread, some textile fragments, a plain wood dowel) recalling the utilitarian realities of their world. Their grey outlines emerge through gossamer planes. Hints about their character are revealed with a closer look. Here they exist in our collective past, inhabiting a grey era from a disappearing era, hazy in outline, rough in detail; but not yet invisible.
