City of Opatija
Feeling shame, showing signs of shyness, shame.
Description of the intervention:
The basic idea of the project is a space installation on the Walk of Fame in the city of Opatija. The installation consists of plants forming the word “shame” or “sram” in Croatian. With this word, I ask myself and the public: “What does it mean to feel shame?” “We were ashamed of something in puberty and while growing up, but is shame a virtue or a flaw of an adult human being? If it is a virtue, shouldn’t every person have a dose of shame in themselves?” Surrounded by the media and politicians that constantly lie without a shred of shame, this question seeks to encourage passers-by to define by themselves as to what the word shame means to them at present.
