Traces of my Ancestors. 2017

Installation made of tracing paper, found frames and a wireless audio speaker.

This installation, placed in a corner and equipped with a mini loudspeaker on the wall emitting traditional drumming sounds, invites the viewer to peer into the window of time. The patterns on the paper draw inspiration from traditional Balkan design. The once mundane now becomes a bridge to the ancestors, to the generations that embroidered patterns onto every day objects- weavers of time that encode information for those who are to come. Previously discarded frames become windows towards an intimate look to the hidden, and the past finds its place in the future.
