Abstract

The title Rotting from Within refers to a feeling I can only describe as the unearthing of my father or the generational trauma that exists within the patriarchs of my family and subsequently the task of uncovering and contrasting my own self amidst the things passed down. It titles a body of work made with and surrounding my father spanning the 8 years I made my reconnaissance with him beginning in 2014 between Berlin, where my parents met and I was born, and Turkey, where my father’s family lives. It deals with my struggle to define him as a father and a human, to process the events that led to his life path and to search for the places where I can attempt at reconciliation.
