Family, who are you?
Family, who are you? is an exhibition of 404 pictures and one video. Pascale Lafay places herself in front of projected photographies from her family’s photo-albums and by extension into those memories. Inserting oneself in an image changes the story. Even constrained by the subjects, sliding physically in her past is an experiment…inevitably unwarranted, again and again, she’s creating a space for herself in the picture.
