dc.description.abstract Why do many of us feel the need to connect to the past? Events that we did not experience will always partially be a mystery and our own memories are both fallible and malleable. Despite the fact that they are often inaccurate, our family history and personal memories serve an important role in grounding us in the present through the context of the past. The artwork in Hair | Heir exhibition is the culmination of a three year exploration of the tenuous relationship we have with the past. I explore both the difficulty in connecting with events we did not experience and the continued urge to continue trying to do so. Appropriated family photographs, genealogy, and recorded narratives serve as the content of my photographs, hair embroideries, and videos.
