Exhibition, Sylvie Harris: The Ancestry of Home

In 2021, Sylvie Harris visited Poland to trace her family’s cultural traditions back to her great-grandmother’s homeland and to examine how they endure in the domestic space. After growing up in a family devoted to tradition and routine, Harris considers the places where these rituals are carried out and how they influence our relationship to the home.
