"Here, in the town my mother grew up and my grandmother grows old, the everyday is transmogrified through the strange parallelism of a life that has only ever partly been mine."

"Drawing on personal and cultural narratives around family, history, tradition, and mythology the work plays on the epistemological and ontological uncertainty of the image as a way of generating novel gestures that hint at these tensions between the familiar and the unknown. The attempt to construct meaning through abscence, building upon the ever-stretching gossamers of memory that cling clumsily to the people and places we call home. Made during a 6-week period Cosic visited her grandmother in Sweden for the first time in 5 years, Wander Lines explores the uncanny encounter of the familiar as it has been made strange through the separation of time."
