fig.: Laura Horelli, "You Go Where You're Sent", 2003, Videostills, Courtesy Galerie Barbara Weiss

In her photo and video installation "You Go Where You're Sent" Laura Horelli outlines important moments in the life of her grandmother, born in 1916, who talks about her experiences as a diplomat's wife working as a physician at the same time. Horelli uses black-and-white as well as color documentary photographs and sequences from a conversation of the artist and her grandmother. "You Go Where You're Sent" is a portrait of historical interest, it traces the life of a woman living on the interface of the public and private spheres, seeking to reconcile her various roles and expectations about her. more culture>>>
