Kiev, Ukraine, Europe

Kiev, Ukraine, Europe, 2014
Video loop 1’15’’

In cooperation with Attila Hegyi, Gabriela Zigová and Gabriela Mészáros

18 February and 8 March, 2014

This video was inspired by the traumatic events in Europe, when in front of our eyes, the situation in one of our neighbouring countries has cumulated in such extent, that office workers, students and workmen — a broad slice of the society has begun to demolish their own city, breaking up the pavement under their own feet to fight for their freedom. Breaking up the pavement together to use it as a weapon. 3 weeks later at the beginning of March 2014, during the reconstruction of Kiev’s main square, Maidan, they started to lay down the cobble again. Ukraine is still at war today. 28.07.2015
