Ettore's Story

Glass bead knitting on the light box, 38 x 50 cm, 2015

The series of works consist of three frame captures taken from Pasolini's film Mamma Roma (1962). It tells about a prostitute, who tries to climb social ladders in the 60's Italy. Her son, Ettore, moves from the countryside to his mother's place in a Roman suburb. Ettore does not want to adapt and he is all the time in a state of feverish dream. He steals and goes to prison, where he dies. He steals, because something is stolen from him: his own roots. The film describes my feelings later as a refugee: moved to a new environment without skills to survive there, skills had to be invented by myself or die away.
