Minsk & Warsaw
I created this work during the first week of the war. It is based on the protests near the Russian embassy in Warsaw. I saw these flags and these posters (there were many more, of course). On the same day, people in Minsk were trying to protest against the war, but it is a hard thing to do in these circumstances in Belarus… And now, there are a lot of Belarusians in Poland, and it feels like a blessing to have the possibility to say out loud everything we want to say. So, “Belarus is not Lukashenko,” and we want the war to be stopped.
