Home and second homes on the islands to the farthest west
Returning to Indrevær, a remote island on the west coast of Norway and the childhood home of her maternal grandfather, Brandsøy explores place as archive to reflect on how an area affected by depopulation remembers. Once part of a thriving fishing community with over 70 residents, the island now only houses one heilårsbuar, all-year round resident, Einar Indrevær. Travelling between its neighbouring islands while gathering stories, she follows the lines of Einar and other island-dwellers to reimagine the area's past, present and future. This ultimately takes the shape of a deep mapping installation made up of smaller parts, an audio-visual piece and a collage of traces.
