"On a sunny, summer, Sunday afternoon I show a selection of drawings, paintings and needleworks of key-moments and memories of my work now and in the past.
Centre piece is the embroidery dining table, where young and old happily get together while chatting, and picking up a coloured thread while friends, family, colleagues and neighbours enjoy works shown and each other's company."

Usually, Polarlicht registers the moments, details and other striking features of the events. This documentation functions as a reconstruction for you, the visitor that could not attend the event.

This time, Polarlicht could not be present at the event to document it. Instead Polarlicht juxtaposed the general event documentation to the artists' selection.
