“Genogram” as a series of family photos, landscapes and places at which I look passively from aside and distance of nearly 20 years is not a photographic series. For me it is a process, defragmentation of the past, processing and finally confronting the very fact that an intimate story is being exposing to public.
Presentation shows the trauma and inheritance, objectification allows an external view and feelings of control. Memories and photos coming out of me are exposed on the walls. They become the past, external object that give me a sort of sense of control that is beyond me. They are ritually buried on the wall.
