The Realm of Forgotten Existence

The Realm of Forgotten Existence is a series of 5 videos on ageing in rural communities, combining oral history interviews with archive material and new film footage produced during my residency at Berwick Visual Arts in partnership of Centre for Rural Economy at the University in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, during 2014/15.
While the images in the videos reveal a landscape that often seems unchanged, the narrative reveals fragments of forgotten stories and traditions, skills and working lives no longer of value in today’s society.
