Name: Ana W.
Mother tongue: Croatian
Occupation: curator
My object: wooden bowl
My story about it:

The small wooden bowl was put in my hands by an acquaintance of mine at the opening of this exhibition in Sombor. He told me: “This is a present I made for you. I told you I was going to make it!”
I started to laugh and I remembered.
We met at the opening of Meetings in Osijek. He was delighted by a big wooden bowl filled with bananas and apples which a friend of mine brought to the photo action “Bring an object”. He said: “I’m a woodcarver myself. I will give you a bowl like this when you come to Sombor!”
I forgot about that but he didn’t. That bowl, a symbol of friendship between a Croatian and a Belgian family, became a basis for a new friendship between a girl from Osijek and a man from Sombor.
