Monya Ghabantani

In continuation of her ongoing transgenerational genealogical research project Untitled, section 1 – 2022-2023, Monya offers an illumination of the links between loving relationships, marriages and other partnerships through the medium of film photography and old photosensitive processes. 

Her work carries a sensitive reflection on hidden or invisible aspects, from disappearance to revelation, from unacknowledged to forgotten. 

The slower pace of transgenerational research allows for introspection in dialogue with her ghosts.  

What remains within us of those we never knew? 

The archival pieces and the embroidered veil have completed this series produced in 2023 in the North of France.
