"My mother’s mother died in a very unexpected way. This happened a long time ago, and I never got to meet her, but she has always been very present in our family. My mother kept some of her belongings and through them memories were passed on and stories told. And the Space Around is my way of dealing with issues related to death and loss."–Teresa Fischer
