Childhood is a timeless space: some memories fade away and are to be forgotten, while others hauntingly repeat themselves and push us back out of time.

HEIMWEG  is an autobiographical project dealing with the themes of memory, belonging, and family after a bitter separation.

I always thought reality
was something you became
when you grew up.

In the square stands Fata Morgana
looking tired, shouting
Morning paper—morning paper.


From Light: “I always thought reality” poem by Inger Christensen. Translated by Susanna Nied.

Under the scorching late August sun, I run into Eustachio as he peels sunflowers.  

I ask if he works on the farm nearby, if he is from the area. "Of course I am, I was born in Matera in 1944. I started working with my father in the fields but it was hard to find a wife. Nobody wanted to be with a farmer. So I began soiling my trousers with lime."
