The installation performance Sister is a life-size wax sculpture of a melting girl. An intimate encounter with one girl, one child, as a tribute to the survival of children in areas of political and social unrest.

With Sister, Roshanak Morrowatian creates a choreography on a non-living body and uses melting as the only movement material. Melting as a symbol of the loss of innocence, but also as a symbol of strength and the elusive in which the wax transforms and assumes a new form to survive.

Sister premiered at the schrit_tmacher Festival 2021 in museum Ludwig Forum Aachen. It forms a branch of the performance Kites.
