Published on the occasion of Mark Raidpere’s exhibtion “Damage” at Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM), the book is dedicated to Raidpere’s oeuvre from the period of 2006–2013. It is trying to capture the core of his current work, conceptually located between two series of photographs that depict two cities – Tallinn and Naples.
The title of both the book and the exhibition refers to a fi lm by the same name by Louis Malle from 1992. There, the main character tries in melancholic loneliness to cope with his life, after a micro-catastrophe of his own creation has resulted in the loss of his son, wife and lover.
