Occupying my parents’ bedroom and photographing this forbidden, untouchable space in Eastern European households is an experience of privacy exposure. This project transformed from being a secret reenactment of how I perceived my parents, through their clothes and things they stored in their bedroom, to a full intrinsic collaborative look into behaviors they passed on. It is a weird collection of superficially looking actions and possessions that reflect me too as the receiver of their habitual legacy.
I am faithful to invading my parents' personal space, from physical to emotional to their sacred image of themselves in my mind. By archiving the behavioral legacy of my parents in a very scripted manner and immortalizing it next to our traditional album, I am redefining what defines us as the Gușu family.
