AñA Wojak retraces her family’s journeys of migration in reverse order, following the matriachal line, weaving them together with a performative gesture recorded at each site of significance.
The visual record of this relay of stones forms a litany/mantra of place stone hand place: a rhythmic narrative of remembrance. This photographic essay is accompanied by the voice of Albina Kondratowicz, (late Grandmother) and linked intimate installations. The artist’s father is represented by a video performance from Lodz Poland.
