In 2014 my husband and I moved into our own house, where we settled down in the several rooms, while my mother-in-law planed to live in the second part. Earlier we spent a few years at the rented apartments, often equipped with furniture and kitchen utensils, but now we began to acquire hastily personal belongings. At the same time my husband’s mother transfered her things accumulated over the decades — her own, things of her parents. Sports cups, samovars, home library, dried crocodiles, plaster statues, garden sculptures, a collection of samurai swords, dozens of kilos of clothes and shoes, including unworn — all of these things were dumped on the floor in a room, where I hoped to make my artist studio.
This archive attacked me, spread around the house — in the corners, on the windowsill, in a closet and stairs. I resisted. I hid it. I secretly threw out it. I move things from place to place. I cleared the space for my studio, but when I agreed with these things and became a part of them, I understood: it’s about the merging process of two families into the one, it’s the moment when the story of two families becomes the one, when variety of archives turned into the general landscape.
