The piece consists of eight large-format photographs wrapped in transparent laminate. Each shows a fragment of the bodies of women from Zuzanna Janin’s family — cousins on her father’s side (Janina, Hanna, Krystyna, Zuzanna, Agnieszka, Melania, Olga, Julia). The prints are hung on the wall in a row, creating a sequence of pictures of abdomens — from the youngest to the oldest. On transparent film, Janin has managed to capture the changing appearance of women and the elusive passage of time.
