Mantel for Maren 


The Night

 200x260x19 cm. 2017






In 2013, my mother was sent to a nursing home after a fall in her social security apartment. I stayed in this apartment for a few days while I visited her. In a small chest of drawers beside her favorite chair I found knitting needles and yarn. She herself had not knitted in years. I learned to knit as five to six years old, probably from Mom, something I only vaguely remember. Mom told, however, that she once looked into my room in the middle of the night and saw me still awake. I was sitting in my bed with huge, shining eyes, knitting on my project, which at that time was a teddy bear. Think it was yellow or brown.
   Knit interest went fairly quickly over, but now, as I sat in her apartment and she was lying in the nursing home and did not know where she was, I took up the knitting needles. 
    Some titles refer to my foremothers; Kari etc.
