Monica opens her eyes

Ioana Rusu

Starting from the search for absence in the rural space, I found elements of interest that draw attention to them precisely through the presence of other things in a context. By exploring cultural, educational or affective directions, I focused my attention to a 9-year-old girl. I explored the ambiguities of a happy childhood through Monica’s gestures, understanding and drawings, which I interpret.


The project is realized in an abandoned school in Viisoara during my artistic residency at `Home at Hundorf`.


The text is a selection of fragments from Andrei Gabriel Nicolae’s poems, written during the two weeks of residency, which I recontextualized in my film.
