My piece ‘De Huid Voelt’ (Skin Feels) is the start of a triptych observational video portrait in where I address my changing perception of my parents and of my hometown. Two short films depict the struggles of observing the aging bodies of my parents, the fear of entering my old neighbourhood park at night and my attempts to leave my hometown behind. In this project I want to express the difficulties concerning letting go of and simultaneously holding on to the environment one grows up in. The set up of the pieces is the same, the images I shot are accompanied by my own voice over narrating the viewer the importance of the location or subject on screen.
