Mamă inima mă Doare
The unveiling of things that have been buried in the back of Panfile’s mind or suppressed memories resulted in a series of videos one of them being Mamă inima mă Doare (Mother my heart aches). This video performance is about a reoccurring memory of an incidents that happened in her childhood. The video starts off sweetly, but soon reveals what has always been in the back of her mind.
“Balkan Baroque” (1997) by Marina Abramovic was the catalyst for this piece. When Natalia read about “Balkan Baroque” one thing jumped at her: if she were to make this piece and sing folk songs from her childhood she discovered she could only remember three verses from only one folk song.
