/03 The Colour of Memory

Olya Ivanova


The spirit of old and disease mixes here with memories of the Soviet past. Marble columns, nurses in white coats, plastic flowers in pots, red carpets, Sharko shower, severe parks and hard beds – all are created in order to keep body and soul into purity and humility.
Sanatorium is something between hotel and hospital. It’s almost a monastery. However, there is no place for life and no passage of time. Perhaps, therefore, sanatoriums have not changed. You can always come and feel the atmosphere of David Lynch’s film or just your nightmare.
