Installation: objects from a burned house, photographs
Two-channel video: Five episodes about what happened 13:45 min (2013), Tabernacle 2:00 min (2012)
One can be obsessed with loss – or let go, look forward in life. The loss can be a chance, a beginning of something new!

This work of art deals with personal loss, sorrow and the process of getting over it. It's based on a dialog with my friend Elina, whose home was destroyed in a fire. She asked me to document what happened to her. The five-episode video tells the whole process from the beginning till the reconstruction of the new home.
