ANALOGUE | my grandma's place



my grandma's place is a spacious flat in a small town surrounded by the mountains in the North of CZ.

my grandma's place is a place full of memories, souvenirs, things from the past. photographs, painting, calendars, candles, tiny statues, fully grown plants, crocheted throws, pillows, glasses, ceramics, jewellery, dining sets from various parts of the world.

my grandma's place is a place where i cannot sleep well and where i am really scared at night; and i know that my mum, who spent significant part of her life there, is too.

my grandma's place is like little time capsule; the past times are kept forever in so many things. like the video cassettes with old Czech movies, cruelly divided by TV commercials from 2000.

my grandma's place has a huge living room, where a big citrus tree is standing and that tree grows real, tiny oranges from time to time. there is also a cast of the head and hand of my grandpa that had deceased a long time before i was even born.

my grandma's place is a place where i'm always fed a delicious yet simple dish containing pasta and cabbage, and with fruit compote.

my grandma's place is a place where the former kids' room is used as a meeting room, where the family sits on the huge sofa and watches the changing photos on the screen saver of my grandma's computer.

my grandma's place is a place that you cannot leave without my grandma waving at you from the balcony.

my grandma's place is very charming in my opinion.
