Chronicle of a Trip: Part 3, Zu Hause

5 January 2020:

The farewell from the Frauenhaus,

is long and emotional.

They are hugs only wishing

the best and also

longing for the same destiny.

We are back.

We rent a car and

move the stuff. More stuff?

It’s unbelievable that everything enters.

In the car there are two friends, Malvina and me.

We go back singing and listening to music.

5 de Enero de 2020:

La despedida de la Frauenhaus,

Fue larga y emocionante.

Fueron abrazos que deseaban

Los mejores deseos y también

Anhelaban un mismo destino.

Estamos de vuelta.

Alquilamos un auto y

trasladamos las cosas, ¿Más cosas?

Increíblemente entró.

En el auto estábamos dos amigos, Malvina y yo.

Volvimos cantando y escuchando música.

-Die Flamme schießt empor-

“Chronicle of a trip” is made up of three parts, which coincide with three different stages of my life. This final entry, Zu Hause: it is the return home. The attempt to restructure all the parts and draw strength from where there are none. Put color and game to the daily. Enjoy again.

The complete work itself is a catharsis, with photos that combine styles and formats, between order and chaos, like motherhood.

Read the first entry “PS / Post Script” and follow from there.
