photo installation, 2005
This project is about the childhood of those who were born, and grew up during the Soviet era within the USSR. It is about those, who were brought up under the Soviet laws and have absorbed all the ideological values of that time.
Today`s youth, who did not live during Soviet times, are absolutely different. Everything we believed, our dreams, our favorite heroes from cartoons, Soviet heroes, Moldavian book characters - now all of them do not exist. But in our hearts this past continues to live, as well as in these photos. And children of the new generation play and live in the space, which was created for us.
Though as adults we understand that the world was dangerous and we are full of doubt, we long to return to childhood and the innocence of a child`s world. These photos were made in an old children`s garden, which exists today.
