"Memories, voids and questions populate this large-scale project. Lisa Gervassi opens up and questions herself in a powerful story, happily mixing different plastic techniques (photographs, period documents, embroidery, illustrations, etc.) and intimate texts. A story where the diversity of materials reflects the sometimes chaotic side of life but where the photographic writing is always clear and fluid." David Fourre
"When my mother died in 2009, I realized that several questions remained unanswered. This is what made me want to look into her past to better understand her life and the woman she was before becoming my mother, but also to better understand our common history and the ambivalence of our mother-daughter relationships."
