After years of tragic Balkan incidents, ex­Yugoslavia republics are trying to restore political contacts and reconstruct relations that used to be intense years ago. As a mater of fact, “economic cooperation” has never stopped, but only assumed different names. A series of digital prints with “watercolor” interventions map political personas as people of “flesh and blood” having desires on one hand and mask of political and public people in the protocol service on the other hand. This matrix was used to encourage the participants of the artist’s colony to write down their ideas and thoughts about love. The “simple” test turned out to be a relatively difficult task and proved that is easier to form a negative emotion and utter a bad word than a term of affection.
