On this floor, in the part of the house where Sara Fabricius once had her bedroom, we’ve created a visual storage facility for the objects she left behind. Her relationship to things changed throughout her life. From her childhood in late nineteenth century plushly furnished living rooms, through a bohemian existence with short sojourns at many addresses, to when she late in life settled down in a small flat in Uppsala. Here, she received family heirlooms from a long-gone upper-class home, but also a seashell from Britany and a stone from Telegrafbukta in Tromsø.
'They look good together. I see them every day and think of places to the south and the north, where I have left large pieces of my heart. (…) As you see, I collect relics.'
Through her objects, which many years later came here, to the house where some of them used to be, connections and possibilities are created. Come inside and discover how time, place, roles, people, and artistic practice can be woven together in the Tapestry of Life.
