It’s All Relative: A Family History in Autobiographical Circumstances By Emily Henson. Born and raised in the the midwest, Emily Henson’s work explores the relationships of created spaces, mindsets, and pseudo-realities both constant and fleeting within life.
It’s All Relative explores family history within autobiographical circumstances. Emily’s family photographs, letters, written biographies, and interviews are used as source material in her own exploration of the similarities, coincidences, and trajectories within her family. Her performative photographic recreations, speak to the way families transfer their experiences to each other in fragments. Where memories are edited, re-imagined, and accumulated. The result is an American family history that is surprisingly easy to connect and relate to our own collective family memories.
