i will still be whole (when you rip me in half)

Presented by Ava Wong Davies

1994. An expectant mother stares at a crack in the wall.

2018. A lost daughter stares at her reflection.

What does a mother owe her daughter? And what does a daughter owe her mother?

i will still be whole (when you rip me in half) is a poetic interlinking of monologues devoted to family, inherited trauma and the essential violence of whiteness.
