The work Balkan Souvenirs is a visual research of the Balkans as a territory that can’t be easily defined, a place where “others” live. It is taking a Western perception of the Balkans as a point of departure - a perception of Balkans as an interstice between East and West, a space where times run parallel, a place of genuine otherness. At the same time, from very personal point of view, it is dealing with the fact that Balkan is a place with which people living there are often scared to be identified while trying to understand reasons for such a fear.
