unforgettable landscape (ROWAN TREE)

SAKAMOTO Natsumi

Video work [Japan]

Inspired by her grandmother’s recollections, the artist created this documentary dealing with people’s memories of rowan trees. The tree is a wondrous plant that appears in Ainu and Scottish mythology. Individual memories fuse together, traversing the realms of fact and fiction. While tracing memories, this work examines how personal narratives provide a structure for historical narratives.
