“In Nachlass, everyday objects belonging to a female Canadian immigrant serve as symbols representing all of the information between languages and cultures that inevitably becomes lost in the process of migration. While this particular story from the turn of the century remains unwritten or unpublished, its persistence demands signification: the experience of an immigrant to Germany, a nation that claims it’s ‘not an immigration country’.” (Robin Curtis)
