In this collection, the metaphoric day starts when the family wakes up at dawn and lights the central fire at the hearth. Food is cooked and eaten after which all members leave the house for the hills to tend to their crops. At sunset, the family returns and light up their hearth once again to eat, drink and be happy together, before the cycle starts again the following day. An exhibition that visually records a fascinating, unique way of life for posterity – a way that is confronting the contradictions of modernity
