“THAI TIME: I’m Dreaming for You Too” – solo show of new photographs by C. Bay Milin Photography of HOUSE GOLD BRICK
These images represent part of my ongoing exploration of immigrant familial memory, echoes of legacy and expectation, and how unknown and unspoken generational traumas shape our present sense of Self.
I’m making an attempt at moving forward in my life, through a studied consideration of past and present. It’s one uncomfortable and necessary survey out of many, looking to see where you exist in that place between ancestral histories and present day. Perhaps we find more of our substantial truths in the basic questioning. Who? What? Where? Why? When? And How?
Through the active compilation of new photographic prints, images from family albums, personal artifacts, and connected via representative Thai-Buddhist sacred threads, I hope to rediscover connections of what was, what might have been, what is, and how it all could be.
Original archival giclée signed art prints will be available for purchase in Studio 13.
(This work will exhibit at the Golden Belt Artist Studios Main gallery, from September 4th – 30th, 2023 as part of the #thirdfridaydurham events in Durham, NC.)”
