You can spend a night in the Villa
In May 2022 my daughter Rada and I came to Finland to spend four month in Saari residency thanks to Ukrainian Solidarity Residency Program. We arrived in evening and received a proposal from the person I was in touch: “You can spend a night in the Villa”. It was a nice option before the trip to Saari.
However, I did not expect to spend the night in a “house-museum”. After the residency, we stayed in the Villa more than once, sometimes for much longer than one night. However, the feeling of a special context, a space that very tangibly shows your presence, remained. Rada feels like a princess in a castle, and I observe new layers of experiencing the war in Ukraine.
You can spend a night in the Villa is an informal part of I am. Rada project.
