Supported by the ARCUS scholarship of the prefecture Ibaraki Uhlig was able to realize UMNIZA MORIYA with 16 inhabitants from her place of residency - Moriya. Taking the more than 100 year history of the elementary school building which is now functioning as the atelier of ARCUS residents as a staring point, she has chosen the project participants out of the graduating class 1967. The nowadays 54 year old graduates are phrasing sentences from their shared past. Within a 16 channel video installation they are overlapping each other visually and acoustically and introduce the viewer to a kaleidoscope of biographies.
