Ruth Erdt addresses the so-called everyday matters of life. By un-selfconsciously directing her camera at her children, herself, and her partners, she lets the viewer in but operates in the field between authenticity and fiction. In restrained and peaceful images that hover on the threshhold of still normality and suspect action, Erdt tells stories about her life -- or what the viewer assumes to be her life.
