Description : The installation is devoted to the families of missing who keep waiting for their loved ones. People come to the railway stations to meet their dearest, while the families of missing are waiting without knowing anything about whereabouts of their loved ones. The installation consists of ten mannequins, which represent the family members of the missing. There are five female (representing daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother) and five male mannequins (representing son, brother, husband, father and grandfather). The mannequins are not intended to reflect the statistics on the families of missing; mostly women are looking for their men. They hold cards with real quotes from families of missing.
Quote from a husband about his missing wife: "My sons and I will never stop looking for her. My wife is alive and I feel that she will return home. She has to."
