‘The idea is that remembrance is warm and sentimental, in reality for some the past is often a dark mysterious place where events were harsh and lives endured absorbed in secrets frequently to atrocious to divulge.
From this background stories are told by the courageous who feel the need to exorcise the ghosts of the predecessors. These stories passed down like Chinese whispers, are kept as trophies by the contemporary generation, digested and retold in a climate of discussion, safety and support. For those whose lives repeat the past they are trapped in a cycle of events that cannot be broken. Their stories are not told but lived.’
