The project Slices of Red explores personal and social memory in relation to identity and politics. In 2015, I visited a flea market in Sofia, Bulgaria; from where I bought two family albums. Using the vernacular found photography and combining it with stories inspired by my family’s memories, I aim to illustrate the commonality of experience, behaviour and belonging. The texts are recounted from first person’s point of view obliterate the individual to create a collective narrative of Eastern European communism. The constructivist design creates a contrast between the movement’s ideology and the concept of the project, allowing the truth to slip out through the slices.
