More Info Works / Fishbones


Fishbones is a description of the difficulty of caring and being close. It is a story of a young woman’s, daughter’s, attempt to detach herself from her home and memories. Fishbones is a visual journey into the daughter’s memories, her experiences and to the present moment. The events are structured as a series of inseparable time levels. The work deals with the inner roles of the family, search for a new form of the daughter-father relationship. Dependence on the other and the independence are in conflict. Abandoning is a part of vulnerability. The feeling of security is momentary.
