Heidi Nikolaisen
"We Belong to the Same Tree," 2009

[عربي] [English] [italiano]

Heidi Nikolaisen’s new project utilizes her family’s correspondence and photo albums. The point of departure for this work is a photograph taken in Norway by her grandmother that the artist re-creates from the same angle in the same village. The work was developed during "Le Bout Du Monde - Expédition 8," which led to this village, Engan, in the North Polar Circle. In "We Belong to the Same Tree," Nikolaisen examines notions of family, belonging, immigration, and the ways in which people share history.

This project was developed during Expedition 8 (Le Bout Du Monde) in 2009.
