In between two worlds

The space enclosed between the new monumental cover and the old gym feels like it is suspended in space and time. On one side the bare bricks, the remnants of parquet, bullet and shrapnel holes, and on the other, the precise geometry of countless columns rounding the building. On on side a grayness that can never be washed away, on the other gold that seeps from the outside tiles into the columns. And in the middle, this empty space, with a lines of flower crowns standing there, like someone forgot them, or like actors waiting to go on stage into the grey gym, or even like surplus material no one knew where to store conveniently, and got left there.
