“Hemma är där hjärtat bor /Home is where the heart is/ El hogar está donde se encuentra el corazón”

“Hemma är där hjärtat bor /Home is where the heart is/ El hogar está donde se encuentra el corazón” – Mindepartamentet inauguration, September 10th

sound-collage performed inside the computer room at mindepartment which will be closed to the public.

The audience can only see/hear through the window and door when we decide to open it (at some moments). Using a sampler, I put together different sounds, music and voices from interviews (in different languages) and field recordings. Me and my son are inside the closed space. Women of color, immigrant women, are allowed in. We repeat “Hemma är där hjärtat bor /Home is where the heart is/ El hogar está donde se encuentra el corazón” in the language you feel more comfortable.

This is our place.

The place we overtake and reclaim because Home is where the heart is and we invade the violent borders that want to separate the beating heart from the body.
