Destroying / Creating Memories (V)

Video, 1080p, 10:00 min

Meet my neighbor in the process of transforming her old pieces of furniture in firewood. When destroying furniture, she is probably destroying memories, but when these remains are used as firewood there is a good chance that the fire fuels new life and, of course, new memories.

In other words, the contrast between her fragility as an old woman and the way she is maneuvering that heavy axe is a show in itself.
