Waiting for Better Times

Zachęta Project Room

curators: Tatiana Fiodorova, Magda Kardasz
cooperation: Karolina Bielawska

Waiting for Better Times is a group exhibition presenting photographs, videos, drawings, and objects by young- and mid-generation Moldovan artists, as well as two projects created in Moldova by Polish artists. The selected works in various ways illustrate the situation in Moldova, a country of complex identity, undergoing transformation, receiving influences from both the east and west of Europe, stretched between post-Soviet sentiments and aspirations of social and economic development. The works show urban and rural landscapes, portraying people and their living conditions, expressing their hopes and frustrations. Often they refer to cultural (including folk) traditions or social issues, or metaphorically present the country’s political problems.

artists: Valeria Barbas, Pavel Braila, John Donica, Veaceslav Druta, Stefan Esanu, Tatiana Fiodorova, Dorin Goian, Tusia Jurminskaya, Lucia Macari, Ramin Mazur, Dumitru Oboroc, Ghenadie Popescu, Anton Polyakov, Alexandru Raevschi, Agnieszka Rayss, Dominik Ritszel.
