Untitled Family Album #1 (2018) is a reference to other family albums that we keep in our homes, and that contain the family's most precious memories. 

The album was a process through grief. I made it at a time when my grandfather had just passed away, and I had also just moved away from my home, Iceland. The grief was a mixture of the two.

Short after my grandfather's death, I was home for the funeral. Afterwards, I visited my grandmother and together, we discovered that she had an archive with about 200 B&W negatives from the time she was young and until my dad's childhood.  

Photo-album with photographs, thread, dried flowers from Hvítárdal, Iceland, human hair, buttons from my grandfathers shirt and text after me.
