“Growing up, I ate lunch with my maternal grandparents every other Sunday. They lived in a large, cold apartment and showed their affection in a restrained manner; so I spent most of my time sitting in a chair trying to behave”.

This first sentence from Rayyane Tabet’s performance Dear Victoria marks the start of an artistic project and quest, based on a family story. A spy story?

The book Fragments was designed by the artist as an installation, coupled with a performance, and is inspired by a family legend about Rayyane Tabet’s greatgrand-father.
