'As remembered all the places I have lived', 2002
Note from the artist :
As Remembered, All the Places I've Lived, is a series of 12 drawings made from memory of the places that I have inhabited since moving away form my childhood home. They have been made from my memory of these places and in a sense they portray the locations of my Bildungs Reise, or the stage settings for all that has happened during these periods. As such they are highly personal and loaded with the memories and the histories of my life.
At a first glance they borrow the clean-cut formal language of architectural blueprints, however a closer look will reveal that something is not "quite right". The drawings differ from the traditional architectural drawing in that each house is constructed in a way that gives each singular room its own vanishing point, its own perspective – highlighting their affinity to film sets where each single room seems to exist independently and only when activated by the action that takes place in it, without any coherent sequence other than what is created through the editing of the individual scenes into a narrative.
