Un Souvenir | 2013

 
 
 
 
 

Le Bouôn Dgieu donne les provisions, et l'Dgiâblye envyie les couqes.

The good Lord provides, the Devil takes away.

(Jèrriais proverb)

When these Souvenirs came together - my family portrait postcard and the ceramic tributes from Dompierre,

I found that this 'invention of narrative' gave them both a materiality and a fullness that went beyond personal experience, and began to say something about our wider European social history.
