Farewell

Anders Holmer

After a difficult conversation with her mother a child takes off on a long, arduous journey. She becomes someone else. She looks for and collects things, but what for? When she returns at last, she is ready to become herself again. The tips of our subconscious icebergs drifts past in a wordless and artful tale about powerlessness, fantasy, acceptance and reconciliation. We get to partake of a strange universe. The feeling that we’ve just seen a tiny bit of everything that is within us lingers long after we’ve closed the book. Sometimes we just need to leave, to find our way back home.
