Anna Škodenko


The texts that Anna engraves or writes with paint on the metal plates are fragmentary and almost illegible. They are accompanied by the will and fear of revealing too much, the readiness to get hurt and avoid it, by intimacy and fragility at the same time: “I am expelled from paradise, I work, I shall die, drowned by disorder… I have lost my immortality.” “Miks sa nii väga keskel seista tahad?” (Why do you want to stand in the middle so much?) “Мне нужно стоять на земле несмотря на то, что я … хочу летать.” (I need to stay on the ground despite the fact that I … want to fly.)
