 JAAKKO HEIKKILÄ

Cero takes her wife Cida into his arms in their new apartment built by the island city of Itaparica and whispers that there is too much violence in Rio.

- Here we have it good. It is safe in here.

At the same time in Balkan Tina writes and reads her homework in Serbian. But her grandmother, who is swinging her legs in the kitchen, she thanks for dinner in her own language: Mulzamiec! It is ancient Romanian, language of the border. Everyone speaks it. It is not written or read.

The photographs of this exhibition are taken of people in Brazil and Serbia. In Serbia I have worked on a project named "Lost in Europe" during 2007 and 2008. The Vlach´s are a minority in eastern Serbian that speaks old Romanian.

In Brazil I did a communal project during the winter of 2008 in a new council estate on the island of Itaparica, close to Salvador. is project was made possible by the artists´ residence of Sacatar Foundation.
