Kaja Solgaard: Moments of belonging - Inspired by the sense of belonging to several cities, countries and places at the same time.

As the world becomes smaller we find ourselves with connections to many places. The place you live, where your family is or the city you feel connected to are not always the same. It’s fascinating how one can feel like home in a new place just in a few days or that the only place you feel you belong, is in the town you grew up. The exhibition ”Moments of Belonging” is an expression of this normal and interesting experience of belonging. The clocks show a layered image of time, referring to other places, countries and cities and at the sam time to the moments of here and now.
