I Made Them Run Away


Martina Zanin
Skinnerboox, softcover
Otabind, 132 pages

I Made Them Run Away is a multi-layered story weaving together family images and photographs with texts written by the artist's mother. It brings together memories from the past and feelings of the present to investigate the dynamics of relationships - the need for attention, the expectations that cause disillusionment, insecurity and judgment. Shifting between the different points of view, Zanin depicts the recurring complicated triangle relationship between she, her mother and the “man”, not constant, mostly represented as an absence in the work.
