Jag drömde att jag var Hanna Resvoll Holmsen


This work starts from a note that I made in my working journal in 2014. The note describes a dream inwhich I was the botanist and photographer Hanna Resvoll Holmsen (Norway,1873-1943). The installation combines Resvoll Holmsen’s photographs of plants taken on the Varanger Peninsula in 1909 with my own dried flowers collected from the same area 110 years later. The installation also featuresa letter in which I writes to Resvoll Holmsen about our meeting. Presented as a poster, the viewer is invited to take a copy of the letter home with them.
