Project I go or I want to London or Are you afraid of me?

The project “I want to London or are You afraid of Me” I am trying to understand the country in which I live and identify myself as a citizen of Moldova. Sometimes I feel vulnerable and powerless in my country, and through my actions show my place in modern society.

Moldova is the most impoverished country in Europe and has become the main supplier of illegal labor with in Europe, as well as a source of illegal trafficking. Sometimes I feel like a slave. For me, these bags are a symbol of post-Soviet space, a symbol of transition, mobility, while on the other hand a symbolic wall between East and West, the barriers, the frontiers, the borders that refused my effort to get to London.

This unplanned and spontaneous performance was shown at the Festival International Festival of Culture and Science, FLOW 2010 in Chisinau and then the shares of the protest have been shown in public spaces in Bucharest and Amsterdam, Paris, Brussels, Krakow…
