Home to Home, 2017

Battlehill Lodge roadside


Claudia Zeiske undertook a 90 day pilgrimage, walking from her home in Huntly, to visit her mother at her childhood home near Munich. 

Having lived, loved and travelled a lot both within and outwith Europe, Claudia always felt blessed with her European passport and the privileges it brings. The UK's Brexit decision has brought this birth right of free movement into question. Walking through Scotland, England, Holland and Germany, the countries she knows best, her aim was to discover what this diverse continent has to offer: spiritually, politically, personally. Creating a path, her path, allowed her to reflect on what holds her to being a European, and what home means in our current geopolitical situation.

This work, a sign post directing you on the path to her childhood home stands outside her current home in Huntly.
