WAITING FOR BETTER TIMES
14.02 – 12.04
“Waiting for Better Times” is a group exhibition presenting photographs, videos, drawings, and objects by young- and mid-generation Moldovan artists, as well as two projects created in Moldova by Polish artists. The selected works in various ways illustrate the situation in Moldova, a country of complex identity, undergoing transformation, receiving influences from both the east and west of Europe, stretched between post-Soviet sentiments and aspirations of social and economic development. The works show urban and rural landscapes, portraying people and their living conditions, expressing their hopes and frustrations. Often they refer to cultural (including folk) traditions or social issues, or metaphorically present the country’s political problems.
