In NACHBARN, the artist travels back to her roots in the Austrian countryside. The video animation shows various cultivated pastures, partly owned by her own family.
The succession of various pastures extends endlessly without showing any kind of borders. Although the so formed space appears to be public, each pasture is owned by different families. Every parcel with its hut is designed individually and informs about the wishes and needs of the owners. Despite the open landscape, the people staying there are exposed to the views of each other.
