Untitled Family Album #2 (2018) represents every other family album. Through my own archive of family photographs, I explore the common human need for recording, storing and passing on memories.

This is a project that has been ongoing for a while. Untitled Family Album #2 is a further development from Untitled Family Album #1. In this work, there is no longer a start and an end - like in the album - but now, each piece is not only dependant on other pieces, but can stand alone if wanted. 

Last time this project was exhibited, it contained 8 finished works. From then, at least 8 more works have come to life.
