Marina (or Memento Mori #1)

This installation emerges from a research process about my great-grandmother and my family’s memories of her. After almost ten years of Alzheimer’s, establishing who she was/is/will be becomes a collective construction of her history through an array of intertwined memories, full of sensory motifs. The strawberries and the knitted yarn, the most present memory-objects that appeared in interviews with my family members, materialize the passage of time through the piece, standing in as a symbol for personal associations, mortality, and the ephemeral nature of remembrance.
