Return: A Sequel

Sylvia de Swaan

Saturday, March 08 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
Holiday 6

Sylvia de Swaan's presentation will consist of about a 120 images (both color and B&W) from the multi-year long term project titled "Return" with emphasis on the work that de Swaan made during a six week period this summer as a sequel to her earlier photographs. It is a quest for lost history, memory and identity as a result of war and displacement. de Swaan's earlier work consisted of a series of solitary train journeys through post communist Eastern Europe. The current phase consist of finding her place in a collective history and in the city where she was born.

de Swaan was the recipient of the 2013 SPE Art Sinsabaugh Creative Artist Project Support Grant.
