Constant - an Homage to the Apartment

A tribute to grandparents and an apartment on the top floor of a Bratislava apartment block overlooking the Danube and Austria takes the form of an intimate dialogue. Between generations, past and present, East and West. In the same space, through family experiences and traumas, the author's identity was also formed.

“Pessimists look towards Petržalka, optimists towards Austria.”
