dana stirling // israeli

dana has created a deeply personal series in ‘cache’. her family roots back to europe: a child of migratory parents, she always felt at odds with her british upbringing and israeli heritage. her family told stories of happier times at home, aided by photographs and portraits of often anonymous relatives. these have informed a collection of images that resonate with memory and identity, both imagined and real.

dana seeks to create new memories in the unimportant objects she sees around her. by capturing a certain tension in their incomplete aesthetic, she makes them part of her own history, granting them the eternity of memory.
