Synopsis:

P – PARADISE

The Olive

„Olive“ where in all cultures symbolizes peace and friendship, in the childhood dreams of the woman pictured mixes up with concepts like birth, femininity and creation. The woman has grown up but still explores her childhood dreams and beliefs and questions femininity, time and choice in one woman’s existence.

W – WASTE

Rugs and Men

Time is ruthlessly in constant motion and doesn’t wait for us not even for a second. Men come, stop for only few moments, taste life and then disappear. But it’s these mira men who give the immortality to objects and reminds them of their short presence.
Objects remember us, just like those rugs we once used to walk on them.
