Scatter the stones

Today is my last day at Ukrainian non-production residency in Vyzhnitsa (south-western Ukraine), organized by @cultural_traffic 💛💙
This is the first residency with six more artists where I actually can do nothing, just go deep into the local Bukovina culture and enjoy thinking, walking around the beautiful nature, reading, and sharing thoughts with others. I had much time during these two weeks to think about my topic – Heterotopia, after Michel Foucault, about ‘the other place’. Vyzhnitsa and this residency are perfect places to get a little rest from the sirens, the big city, and the war.
Because of this opportunity, I had the occasion to do a very tiny artwork To scatter stones.
There is a river Cheremosh and I just love the huge field of stones on its banks. I just remembered how I drew on the stones in Crimea which is now occupied by russia, on the seashore in 2011 and 2012. Here, the landscape much reminded me of that and I just painted short quotes and drawings, I was thinking about. Red, black and white.
