Year of project
In my masterwork, I dealt with unprocessed transgenerational trauma, the phenomenon in which the effects of traumatization occur in people who have not themselves experienced the event but have somehow inherited the unprocessed traumas of their ancestors.
I wanted to show the blocking effect of this special legacy on the heir.
Symbolizing collective trauma, the large and heavy woven object covers the body and minimizes its range of motion by the wefts on the back.
