For this series of objects, photographs of the artist’s family album have been distorted, reworked and transformed into collages and mini-stages.
The artist’s personal archive was also used for the experimental video Odaliske auf Tuchfühlung- eine Schleierfahndung
English title: Unveiling Odalsque
This video explores the attributes of various cultures by comparing the headscarf- wearing-habits of the artist’s two grandmothers. One of Turkish origin, the other of German origin and the use of the veil by other family members.
