About This Artwork

The artists created an installation at the same site they worked in 2003. It was in the middle of the winter of 2006, a winter with a record snowfall, when the artists visited the region to deepen the plan for the coming exhibition. The school stood, covered in snow and surrounded by a completely different scenery from that seen in 2003. The artists perhaps felt the reality of a community destined to be shut in deep snow for almost five months. The installation, which used the entire building, deeply and densely confined the memory of the place. Many elderly residents came to the preview held for the villagers before the official opening. They were asked to bring items related to the community or their school days. These objects rest quietly in a small space at the back of the school, farthest from the entrance.
