Product Description

I developed this project between Slovakia and Ukraine. In 2012 I attended an artist in residence program (KAIR) in Kosice, a slovak city located at the east of the country, only few hours away from the Schengen border with Ukraine. My project was about the small village, called Salashi, where my grandfather and his three brothers grew up before to emigrate to Argentina in 1935. The house where they used to live is since 40 years the only library of the village.
After working on my project during the long Berliner winter, I went to Kosice and Salashi in May 2013 to present my work.
