The title of the work is identical to a series of photographs by Huseyin shot in Odessa, showing curtains blowing in the wind. These images inspired an installation of hardened lace curtains, frozen in time and space. The work refers to the gesture of opening the windows to set free the soul of the deceased, as well as the idea of a spirit present in a room, mysteriously lifting the curtains to reveal its presence.

Chatting with grandma last night, she mentioned an uncle and some cousins from Laos. People she has not seen since the late 1940s. It’s rather amazing (and sort of comforting) to know that somewhere out there’s a group of people whom I could have claimed to be family.
Wherever they are, I wish them well.
