This weekend my grandmother Marie is the on the cover of Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin. @szmagazin
I did this project in 2006 when I was still living in Berlin. At a time in life when I was spending my days in cafés with Katja Kublitz (@yarisal_kublitz ) talking about art and developing ideas. And this image was one of the results of our many inspiring talks.
The image was first exhibited at Asker Museum in 2006. I still have a clear image of my grandmother being present in the exhibition. My mother had brought her there, and they were walking around, viewing the exhibition together. A woman came over to my grandmother, put a hand on her shoulder and told her “So you are the star of this exhibition!” My grandmother smiled. I can´t remember what she answered, but she looked proud and happy. Today she is on the cover of Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin. She is not with us anymore, but I am sure she would have had the same smile on her face, if she could have seen it.
