Wordless (from the Houses series)

The second part of the Houses series entitled Wordless talks about a story untold. The story about a tragic relation between mother and son is unveiled to us fragmentally by opening of archeological boxes where we find objects from the house as well some particles of the narrative in random order. Opposed to our discovering, however, we are constantly confronted with the silence of those who may know the story. With their exposure we become the ones watched, the ones stepping over the threshold of the house, stepping into its personal space. In this way, it wordlessly speaks of the micro-history that has marked the lives of inhabitants of a village, becoming equally important as them within a network of life stories and fading memories.

The Houses series is a series of open research of the abandoned houses. Their narratives reveal wounds on a personal, family, community and society level. In this sense the houses in this series can be understood as ruins of desires. The Houses series is based on memories and facts that may be true as well as characters that may be fictive. The mixture of video recordings, fragments of dialogues, objects and stories, build an image of reality, which always underlines the story of an individual.
