PARENTS / 2017 & 2018


pencil on paper / about 30 x 40 cm


These drawings illustrate some anecdots I was sure my parents told me.

Although I wrote down these anecdotes I hesitate to present them here in words.
One thing is privacy, the other thing is that memory is a process. And one should never be too sure about what one thinks to know.

... And this is only my share of the project:
I collaborated with my brother, Lutz Bielefeldt, who drew the same amount of pictures but used different anecdotes.

It starts with a picture for my mother and is followed by one for my father (mum, dad, mum ... etc.).
