A Foreign Memory
It seems that at some point in our lives we delve into the realms of nostalgic tourism in search of a lost era, a golden age of security. Riddy finds herself confronted with the gates of the cottage that her grandparents once owned, twenty years after it was sold. Familiar yet undeniably foreign. Transporting her back to the idyllic era of her childhood, it is here that she feels compelled to search out her beginnings and piece together her fragmented memory. Using the stories and photographs that her family have preserved, Riddy begins to retrace her past to understand the place that is still held so dear to her family. A story of dislocation and re-connection, a reconstruction of memory.
