Lost Suitcase
    Lost Suitcase



    3'36" single channel digital video
    (original 2009 / revised 2011)

    This silent video presents a love story between the artist's Turkish in-laws during their time in Germany just prior to WWII.  Using family photographs, documents, and stories told by her mother-in-law, the work documents a specific era and lived experience.  By using first person narration in a style reminiscent of old black and white films and incorporating memories and personal photographs, the artist transforms reality into fiction.
