Everything returns because it loses its way
We still do not know where will be the last cemetery

Swansea Museum

Milena Dopitova intervened within the collection at Swansea Museum to explore the personal experience of historical objects and to realign them with a potential previous use.
In the Ceramic Gallery we overheard conversations about the artifacts that suggested ideas of their owner and their history, putting them back into the context of their use. A series of drawings that looked at the action of war depicted the fear and anxiety of the artist and a film of a young boy learning to play the violin revealed his mistakes and emotions on show for all to witness.
