Anonymous Incantation

Ask your mother to tell you a memory of her mother

Paint the scene of your mother’s memory

Take the painting of your mother’s memory and place it in an art gallery of your home town


Ask your father to tell you a memory of his mother

Paint the scene of your father’s memory

Burn the painting of your father’s memory
