The domestic spaces we inhabit become the set in which our lives play out, giving form to the memories we clutter inside them. The home also permits us to recall flashes of memories lost and forgotten.
How do our memories of a domestic space change and evolve over time; from when it was first built, through war and between generations? The home I will be studying is that of my grandparents, which they built in 1969 Yugoslavia. It was the childhood home of my mother, her two sisters, my sister and myself for a short time. My grandmother also still lives in the house, confining herself to two rooms out of convenience.
This project compiles a collection of memories of the home from each of women who have lived at the house. The project culminates in a sound piece and a booklet. The work evokes the feeling, character and scent of home and its inhabitants and gathered memories.
