Legacy: a gift of property - Master's Project

Legacy: a gift of property
Video Installation, mixed media.This video installation is based on interviews that questions different aspects of a specific group of family related immigrants that came from Peru to Sweden in different years 1973 to 2008. It reflects on the individual construction of identity through migration and suggests the creation of new individual nations or islands from the association we have with different lands, and of our memories creating the feeling of belonging to all of them or none.
...I had finished my studies and I was working at a gas station waiting for tickets to come to Sweden...
...I don’t see a difference between me and a Swede. Maybe they see me differently, but I don’t see the difference...
...I always say that I am from Peru, from Pucallpa, from the Amazon region of Peru...

...I don't feel now neither Peruvian nor Swede. I am a universal person...

...I have never thought about teaching my kids about Peru. Maybe I have forgotten. I have never thought about it. It’s not that I didn’t want to; it just didn’t cross my mind...
