The w_show exhibition space was used to explore, in visual terms, the animation of a community. Community art projects focus on social identity, which results in embodiment of those particular social values and stifles the evolutionary aspect of communities. Presently Emilija is researching narrative story-telling as a method of meaning-making to find out if it can reveal to methods of honoring the living nature of communities. The drawings presented in the space were gathered from sketches of people on the streets in the community of de Pijp, Amsterdam. The people chosen, the nature of marks used, and the shapes of the paper, give the community the chance to continuously begin in their being.
