The Future is Bright
The Future is Bright is a multi-media project, which explores disillusion, migration, identity, re-discovery and the failed utopian promise of ideology through the artist's family’s history. Focusing around the narrative of the character of Grokhovsky's 94 year old only surviving grandmother, a veteran of World War II, the project investigates formation and de-construction of migrant self through an extraordinary story of survival, humanity and legacy.
