Using the camera to look for remnants of the past, I visited a place my family used to call home but which now only exists in memory. Shot between my mother’s home in England and the city of Wrocław, Poland (formerly Breslau, Germany) where my grandparents were exiled from in the 1930s, this film travels through documentation of places that were witness to their experience, poetically blending images that explore shifting notions of belonging, inheritance, and lineage. Landscapes, letters, maps, weathered gravestones, photographs, city statues, shopfronts painted over but now peeling away...
Annemarie Wadlow is a research-led artist working between moving image, writing and photography. Her work explores the middle ground between image and imagination, often using found or archival material and past narratives to question notions of inheritance, personal identity and belonging. Past projects have investigated collective feminist practice, collaborative image-making, and the power of revealing intimate moments. She believes in building community through creating one’s own genealogy, and that paying homage to those who inspire us is a necessary act of friendship within art practice.
