The video is connected with my installation “Hilda”, which is about my senile great aunt Hilda (1906-2002). I filmed her while she was getting more and more dement. As she was demented, she talked to herself or to imaginary companions. She didn’t remember the world wars and didn’t recognize us. She thought she was a schoolgirl and lived in her childhood home. She sometimes asked where is God. Sometimes she looked a dancing figures in the ceiling. No one else saw them. When mom asked if they dance well, Hilda answered: It isn’t much of the dancing anyway…
