Tochter doppelt - mit Großmutter und Urgroßmutter

Generativ (generative) – with daughter, mother and grandmother
photo restitchings, beginning 1994

In these pictures I unite four generations of the female line of my family, who represent a female chain. I began with my daughter and ended with her great-grandmother. As a contrast to the patriarchal system of inheritance, I wanted to show the matrilineal connection and the interaction between the generations: the young girl already has the old body, and the old woman still has the young body inside her. The aim is to ensure that this painful process remains visible.
