Lili and Amiran fled the war in 1991 and found home in an abandoned hospital building in Tbilisi. They paid 40 euros to stay there a couple of nights.
30 years later this is still their home.
This series explores what it means to live as a displaced person for 30 years.
What it means to create home in a hospital room where somebody died. What happens when time stands still, but continues to move, when a moment of refuge becomes a way of life, when you seek shelter for a few nights and it becomes a place where you have raised two generations of a family.
I know this hospital well. my relatives live there. I have been visiting since childhood. I have always been fascinated by the human ability to move on, adapt, keep going. With this series I try to understand relationship between past and present, where they are in harmony and where they push against each other.
