Originally a publication commemorating my grandfather who passed away in 2016: one of the last photographs I took of him was fragmented into all its details on the pages of a book. All I can access at the time are vague outlines and details, just like memory after grief.
Now some time has passed and I attempt to put the picture together again. I tear the book apart in search of that wholeness, knowing it’s impossible to re-create, but finding a new state of remembrance through this action of placing those fragments together. It’s futile as an attempt to return to the original image, but it is an evocation to memory and a testimony to restoring recognition.

This publication was to commemorate my grandfather who passed away in 2016. One of the last photographs of him was made into a paper lithograph; it's then fractured into all its details through the publication, and the shapes of those remembered objects attached to the book, like how they’re attached to my memory of him.
The publication is installed on a cement plate, together with an etching portrait and an audio piece.
