Bagajele abandonului

The memory of the last day of peace in my phone. The Brâncuși Day, at the Cesianu-Racoviță Palace. I had a quiet life, without too many worries. After the invasion of Ukraine, our life changed in a few days. Maybe we appreciate more what we have. Peace and freedom. I think with sadness about the drama of this invaded nation, I think about those who abandoned their family, friends, home, the place where they lived or worked. They hastily packed in a suitcase what they could seemingly save. I think of those who were left behind, without parents, children, relatives. Painful.

Glory to Ukraine!

Last Day of Peace, First Night of War is an interactive digital installation, part of the Museum of Abandonment, a digital wall of images showing the last days of peace collected from mobile phones.
