In the embroidery work mayrig , mother Dogan takes up different stories that are rendered invisible, imprecise and contractional by nature. Dogan asks: How can different stories be seen in the same, and even our own image? Retracing images of her own grandmother whom she never met, juxtaposed with Arshile Gorky’s – an Armenian painter in exile – paintings of his mother who died in deportations, blue skies and red clouds throw a shade to the interwoven transgenerational history of the Near-East. (Text: Alina Strmljan)
