„That sunday morning she went out without hair on her head. I was wondering if she wouldn´t freeze.“ This is how the jigsaw portrait “2 or 3 Things I Knew About Her” begins; a psychogram of several women and their roles with the attempt to combine them to one single person. Three events, which for me constitute my mother, are the abstract frame for the brittle narrative. However, this is not just a simple documentary evaluation of a person and her biography. Rather this is the precarious and fragmentary attempt at a portrait, armed with just the two or three things, I claim to know about her.
