for a video / art project by Sonja van Kerkhoff

I am interested in the stories others have had growing up three or four generations later and what impact this seems to have had on you or your family members.
From your own story, however brief it might be, I will make a video installation of impressions, of moments, of the personal, of peoples involved.

If you are an artist or musician or writer yourself, your work can be included in this project as is, for the exhibition if logistics are feasible.
The exhibition will be in New Zealand in late 2017 or in 2018 to start with.
You will be send documentation of this later. There are no costs to participate.
Deadline for a response: 1 November 2017
