"Tramlines is a 7metre drawing* I made over two monthlong residencies

in Gothenburg, which explored the sense of home and belonging in this city that is known to be very segregated and which is punctuated by tramlines that go from the white affluent centre to the immigrant suburbs. The drawing documents a metaphoric journey on one of these lines, and each section of it has a title that relates to the migrant - or Stranger in the Village - experience. The drawing is accented by a small projection into a drawn camera of footage of a Roma lady singing a sorrowful dirge in the street, and the titles of the parts of the the titles of the parts of the journey are written by hand on the wall below the drawing."
