What are the consequences of returning to the region one grew up in, and how can drawings facilitate in re-engaging with this context? Does there need to be a distinction between an old and new drawing, or can they exist side-by-side so that their affective residues remain untethered? In the small poem that is part of the piece, I reappraise the children's drawing and its latent potential for intimate revolt.
