Video installation about memory and retracing & discovery of forgotten moments in one’s life. A video installation lasting 17 minutes produced for the project ‘Trust Your Local Artist’.

Growing Home consisted of three different films running simultaneously in three different windows (see photos on this page). The narrative as follows: Driving at night down small winding roads. In the long forgotten language Old Norse, a bearded man attempts to remember and recite long verses from “The Elder Edda”.

The video shows the viewers/audience close-ups of the sun, branches, water drops and windscreens from another car drive. Juxtaposing the moving car with the first projection can give the viewer a feeling of entering the building seated in the car.
