The project is a search for one's own family roots. The search takes place in the house of the grandmother, who always put off taking care of family photos.
She chose them on special occasions and told us about the people in the photos.
The connection between relatives in the photos largely expresses and distorts the dividing paper in the album. Its structure twists, converges and runs, intersects with other lines or is interrupted by a fold of paper. With its semi-transparency, it reveals, but leaves it hidden at the same time.
When I was little, I secretly opened my grandmother's albums and guessed who the people posing in the photos were. I was also fascinated by the dividing paper, which before the unveiling of the photograph itself created a mystery, the tension that lies behind it. It reminded me of the cross-section of the forest where the circles form tree trunks and the intricate tangle of lines are the roots and branches living symbiotically on one piece of paper.
These albums, together with photos, create a home for me. They are part of an atmosphere that breathes
family ties. Atmosphere of long-term relationship building.
