The idea of the UN supported project is to make people
from both sides of the border line speak about their memories, make them
visible either as photos or as paintings, no matter if they know how to paint,
or by contributing an object which represents for them a precious moment.
The curator of the project is the owner of ESKI
Gallery, Umay…: “we have visited those who have agreed to take part in the
project and we talked to them; we have taken them to their village where they
grew up where their families were, their friends and the surrounding for many
years of their life. It was sometimes a heartbreaking experience for us but we
all need to come to terms with the past, we must open all doors and make a
revision of what’s inside it in order to get back our peace of mind….”
The project is going to continue, it is only a
beginning, Umay said, but she thinks it very important, as memories spoken out
in the presence of the others will help solving many longstanding problems the
politicians cannot solve.
