Moldova's Water

On the invitation of Galerie Aorta, Anja de Jong worked as artist-in-residence for 3 weeks in Moldova, Europe’s forgotten, and poorest, country.

After an extensive exploration of the capital Chisinau, she decided to take Moldova’s water as the theme for a series of photographs. Looking at the photos, the viewer is immediately confronted by defunct fountains and empty pools, but also indirectly with the deplorable state of the parks in which they stand and the buildings to which they belong.
