Handwoven tapestry from recycled weft to cotton warp
160 cm x 90 cm
2017

Two sides of the tapestry form two different memories of my grandfather: the one I now really remember and the one I always thought I remembered.

The other side of the tapestry is formed like a rya rug. The yarns are the same as in the front, but as they run longer and hang free they blur and form something new. Both sides of the portrait form two different memories into one, tangled and mixed.
