(Re)Union (1994) is an installation created for the Forum for Contemporary Art in St. Louis, Missouri. It was based the artist’s family history research, as she tries to locate family members who may have been enslaved in America. She traveled through North Carolina collecting clues to individual identities.  Evidence of each person’s existence fills his or her own box, and various objects and prints related to the artist’s search surround the boxes.
