Mark Raidpere: “I think of a living space filled with desires and hope, the progress of life excitement. To have a solid floor and a window in the wall to look out from under your feet. The room itself is tired, filled with memories and connections, long-lost failures and achievements, the sadness and power of forgotten people. He dominates, protects and determines. ” The “Isolation Dialogue” (spring 2020), completed in cooperation with Tiiu Suvi, is part of the Isolation Dialogues project initiated by the Photo Museum and uniting various authors, the aim of which was to capture the perception of isolation time through visual dialogues.
