Project Description

The Forgotten Stories

We are increasingly sitting by ourself with our own computer watching movies, playing games, reading etc. The risk may be that we forget to be social, forgetting to tell “Our own Stories.” Stories about our own family and our own roots. We forget the importance of reading for and to each other. The child and the young men in the painting is trying to collect the letters to be able to assemble and read the forgotten stories.

 

Vi sidder mere og mere hver for sig med vores computer og ser film, spiller spil og læser. Risikoen kan være, at vi glemmer at være social, glemmer at fortælle ”vores egne historier.” Historier der handler om vores egen familie og vores egne rødder. Vi glemmer betydningen af at læse højt for hinanden. Barnet og de unge mænd i maleriet forsøger at indsamle bogstaverne for at være i stand til at samle og læse de glemte historier.
