Hanging Family History (Matriarchal Line)

Matriarchal Hanging Family History, Copper wire, rice paper, ink, 2014

This piece is a portrait so to speak of my mother through her known family history. Her vital information is written on the triangle at the top, her parents are wired into her and their parents into them until they are unknown. This piece goes back at the furthest about 20 generations.
