These photographs portray family heirloom furniture and other objects that have been wrapped up and stored for decades. They explore the concept of sentiment, where by means of protecting these items, we attempt to hang on to old chapters, give value to lost generations and family history. These objects provide us with a false sense of security and permanence, but now write their own story and history as they are stowed away by a family who has long moved on.
Installation view of the exhibit at the Galerie Monika Wertheimer in Switzerland in 2013.
