My mother died when I was 2 and I started to realize that all my memories associated with her are either constructed with objects (especially still & moving images) related to her or stories about her told by people who have known her.

Post-mortem Portrait of My Mother, Evelyn Chung-Jenewein is a work that I have developed from this project.
