The «Roots» serie was inspired by the artist’s journey in search for her roots in Glendarragh, the Glen of the Oaks, 30km south of Dublin. In this rural Ireland, where her grandmother lived before immigrating to Switzerland, the artist observes the life ruled by the mood of the
elements. The places are inhabited by unusual objects and the characters could come straight out of a fairy tale. The surrounding nature, wild and mystical, seems to hold the secrets of life.
