This solo exhibition uses digital imagery, video and personal artefacts to explore ideas about cultural displacement and loss. It is based on the experience of attempting to follow my motherís journey from Latvia to Australia at the end of WWII through a series of displaced personsí camps in Poland, Germany and Italy. The digital prints in the show were developed from images and video I took during my 3 month journey and one of my motherís old school photographs, taken in 1936. I was particularly drawn to the school photo because it both captures the sense of innocence and uncertainty that accompanies childhood and provides a strange premonition of the war that was soon to affect everyone in the photograph.
