ARTIST’S STATEMENT: Peter Zuvela’s work expresses a search for the histories and stories of his ancestors. His poignant and moving images portray a stillness and nostalgia for a lost past. His personal journey to find family origins on the Croatian Island of Korcula, led to this series of works. They are a collection of images called “Searching for the Ancestors” The exhibition was part of "FotoFreo 2012 Open Exhibition Programme" and was held at Kidogo Art House.

FotoFreo Fringe Festival 2010: Loss & Unrealised Dreams

Through the eye of the camera, trapped memories and dreams are captured in the decaying peeling paint, the muted colours of a deserted house and soft autumn light streaming through windows and doors. Images depict everyday objects now abandoned as the family fractured and moved away leaving a virtual museum of life frozen in time. This dislocation and relocation, a common migrant experience, is poignantly represented by a series of beautiful images produced during a recent return visit by Peter to his family’s ancestral home, now deserted and empty of human life.

Peter is the son of Croatian Immigrants who travelled as a young couple to Fremantle, Australia in the early 1960’s from the island of Korcula (Dalmatia). After building a home, a successful business and a family of three children, his parents decided to return to the island. All of the adult children over time returned to Australia leaving their parent’s homeland. This dislocation and relocation, a common migrant experience, is poignantly represented by a series of beautiful images produced during a recent return visit by Peter to his family’s ancestral home, now deserted and empty of human life.
