Chez Moi, De Loin
'Chez Moi, De Loin', roughly translated into 'at my place, distantly' explores the dark history of my Grandparent's house which was used as an infirmary by the Nazi's during the German Occupation in the Second World War. Having this prior knowledge when entering the house, I imagine the rooms how they were, who was in them, what they did and if certain marks on the wall were made by my family, a resident before or by the Germans. There are layers upon layers of patterned wallpaper, providing a backdrop for the proudly placed objects in the many rooms and there is an illusion of the home. With the changing shadows, simultaneously concealing and revealing, I find evidence of a past almost lost and unrelated to the present time inside this building.
