Drawing upon the collected archive of ephemera and images that contribute to the histories of families and extended families has been a longstanding practice of artists. Frequently this becomes the impetus for making work that investigates and explores the many narratives within a family. The narrative of my mother's experience as a Holocaust survivor was uncovered in materials that lay dormant for years. Creating a body of work in this manner presents a challenge to inform the work, and move beyond the personal or nostalgic, such that it offers a larger significance to the audience.
