PIEMemories can be triggered by many things, large and small.
While living in the USA as a foreigner, my work has focused primarily on memories of my childhood in Malta and England.
When I was a little girl, I would help my mother bake pies. With the leftover pastry we would make a small 'special' pie and fill it with something sweet as a treat. My grandmother did this too. Carrying on the tradition, the 'special' pie became a vessel for my memories.
As I prepare to return to Europe, my focus on nostalgia has turned from memories of home to recent memories of my life in America. Each 'special' pie contains an object that is representative of a memory made while living in America.
My choice to represent this work photographically stems primarily from my love of the medium, and also from it's power to change proportions and instill magical qualities into small objects.
