‘Ancestral Ritual 1’ explores the phenomenon of inherited ancestral trauma, wherein the experienced traumas of ones ancestors are passed down epigenetically, manifesting as psychological and physical conditions.  Read More


Ancestral Ritual 2

‘Ancestral Ritual 2’ continues to look at concepts explored in Ancestral Ritual 1, in the form of a physical installation that invites visitor interaction.
