‘Lumiers’, 2000, part of an exhibition titled ‘Coming and Going: Part II’ by Christian Boltanski. 9 photos of strangers are printed onto cloth & hung from wheeled racks. A light shines through the images- the light representing an interrogation lamp, which is associated with finding out secrets and therefore, revealing identity.
I find this interesting because the issue here is similar to mine. Like my Polish family, these people are unknown, we know nothing about them except the way they look.
