For three periods of one month, Bieke Depoorter (1986) has let the Trans-Siberian express guide her alongside forgotten villages, from living room to living room. Some Russian words, scribbled on a little piece of paper, allowed her to be welcomed and absorbed in the warm chaos of a family. Accidental encounters led her to the places where she could sleep. The living room, the epicentre of their life, establishes an intimate contact between the Russian inhabitants. For a brief moment, she was part of this. Their couch became her bed for one night. In this way, she experienced transient, but very powerful, shared moments. Ou menya is the result of this journey, for which she received the HP Magnum Expression Award from the renowned photo collective Magnum Photos.
