Artist’s Notes

The puzzle pieces refer to segments of information, evidence gathered, the arrangement of them that forms a narrative in a statement, the memories that resurface, the contextualising and ordering of particulars. The space between them speaks to disconnection, isolation, time passing and inaccessible pathways that leads to dead ends. The repetition throughout the series speaks to going over and over particulars with lawyers and government bodies.

Accessible therapeutic outlets and interventions for people struggling with the complex effects of human rights violations are integral to healing the damage.
