Andy Mullens’ Bloodline is an intricate tapestry of history and diaspora. An assemblage of photos from Saigon, part strangers/part family – are re-contextualised through a connection of space, and a delicate red thread. Although all faces presented are affected by the war, the presentation of a chaotic family tree allows the viewer to commiserate the loss as well as revel in the connection to home and family.
