“The stories which we are told allow us to fabricate our realms of imagination, creating utopians of a place never before visited by us personally. Through gathering memories of those who have lived in Yugoslavia, I am interested in the juxtaposition of contemporary printmaking and post memory. By means of placing objects from participants’ stories into my video pieces, contained within a house or the forest, creating a utopia of a country that may now only exist through memory.”
