‘Who Has Told Her That We Belong To Her?’

‘Who Has Told Her That We Belong To Her?‘ is a performance installation that discusses notions of the body as the archive and the archive in the body. Through the recollection of family stories the work attempts to unfold the archive that has manifested within the body. Language and migration as the uncommon denominator, yet the foundation of family it revolves around the search for belonging and identity. ‘Who Has Told Her That We Belong To Her?‘ explores the reconnection of histories within the body through the act of listening.
