    Two Sisters received support from the Canada Council for the Arts. It was exhibited, in 2004, in the main exhibition space at Manx Museum (Douglas, Isle of Man, British Isles) as well as the Mediatheque Francois Mitterand (Poitiers, France). For each exhibition, the gallery space was transformed into a circular journey, challenging the visitors’ understanding of linear time and life narrative. A sound room was built in the centre of the gallery where sound bled into the whole space. Through the use of sound, photographs and objects, the emotions of past wars jut into the present. The layout, the immediacy of sound, stillness of the photographs and objects on display intended to engage visitors through an evocation of feelings and senses.

    To coincide with the Two Sisters exhibition at the Mediatheque Francois Mitterand in Poitiers, an evening program included a presentation by Prof Marc Charpentier called: 'Berlin: ville de memoire et de creation: le contexte de Deux Soeurs' , which addressed the context of the Two Sisters project.
