Exhibition: To live is to leave traces...In the interior... An abundance of covers and protectors, liners and cases is devised, on which the traces of everyday use are imprinted. The traces of the occupant also leave their impression on the interior...
Walter Benjamin

what is home... whose voice is it that calls you home every time...

home is the door ajar..the curtain that flutters..the boiling cattle..hairclips that fall on the floor..books scattered on random surfaces..bulgur wheat pilaf..traces permeating the objects..a dancing woman..shadows..dinner table all ready..taste..smells..the sound that returns in the evening and recalls the routine..silence..
