ABOUT THE WORK:
- Faceless Man: “End of February… Morning. The sun slowly awakens. Spring is approaching, and it will be warm soon. Before the alarm clock rings, there are still a few hours. Suddenly, everything was shaken by a strong impact. What was that? Phone calls from friends from all corners… In an instant, the whole of Ukraine erupted. Fear! Who unleashed the pendulum of this fear? A faceless person – War!!! And with each subsequent explosion, with each air raid siren, with the sound of a warplane, war becomes increasingly present in my thoughts and my life. Never! Listen, never allow it to enter your room, your house, your city, and your country. It destroys the future. It has destroyed the present. Now it is already warm. Summer is here. But for me, it is still the end of February. Morning. And the most I desire is peace.”
