Appelez-moi Victoria is a visual archaeology that explores elements of memory, genealogy and exile. This investigation related to the consequences of my family’s migration. I address issues of self definition, the discovery of one’s own roots and the exploration of my memory traces and neuroses. Between reality and fiction: an investigation and
a personal quest, on psychic and mystical levels, concerning my distant, evaporated, disappeared Italian origins, which I try to compose from fragments of stories of children of immigrants. With the help of a psycho-genealogist – a theory established by Alejandro Jodorowsky – I investigate out of focus and forgotten aspects of my family memory.
This project is about emotional legacy; it’s about a ritual passage which has left its signs, its marks, for future generations to witness but never live again.
Why abandon our roots on the border?
Children of exile, what will be our heritage?

Writers were invited to respond to one, some or all of the photographs from Wouter Van de Voorde's body of work, STORM.
Australia faced one of its worst bush fire seasons during the summer of 2019 going on to 2020, with around 18,636,079 hectares burnt.
In response to this national tradegy, we teamed up with our friends at Rewind Photo Lab and a few artists we have worked with in the past to get a print sale up and running, with 100% of proceeds to be split between WIRES and FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES.
Due to not meeting the deadline for FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES, we decided to split that half of the funds between SEED MOB and FIRESTICKS ALLIANCE.
We raised $2,200.00
Artists in order:
Jordan Madge, Otis Burian Hodge, Isabella Kerstens, Tammy Law, Jason Koxvold, Harry Culy,
