Lazaretta is the original source of my inspiration for this video.
Quarantine, social isolation, confinement. You arrive with a suitcase full of memories, stories, thoughts, dreams, nightmares.
I started knitting the words of a poem by Emily Dickinson “there is another sky”, which spoke to me, deep in my soul. Images, as I saw them, of the other heaven, of the just and pure, of nature with flowers and the sounds of insects buzzing signify to me freedom, light, change, joy. The poem became my mantra and I knitted a dress /sculpture with the words and my tears together.
The dress / sculpture, becomes the symbol of liberation, personal or social. In the video a performance unfolds, a journey to the creative boulevard of Existence, a journey into our personal garden and light.
INTO MY GARDEN COME became a video with alternating shots between the wet basement of a 120-year-old Brewery and a winter garden in Berlin.
My work was supported by 2 exceptional artists, Alkistis Kafetzi in camera and editing and Maroulita de Kol in music and sound design.
