What I see in Lina’s work is traces residues remains and how the past keeps bending the present, sometimes, bending the present in ways that are not easily understood, because the past is covered up or the violence disguised or mascaraed as something also….the way I see your archive work functioning is, like the political work of memory and reclamation, somehow the history of spaces has been occupied in a different way….reframing the memory and bringing back the memory to those spaces.
