Winter Wende was originally a traditional pagan festival of light. It was a celebration of the days gradually became longer and the sun stronger. The midwinter festival was the feast of a farewell and a new beginning; of death and fertility. In the video work WinterWende elements of this celebration are used in a symbolic way intertwined with our customs and manners of modern times. An intimate situation changed gradually in an almost oppressive ritual.
