The Museum of Bro­ken Re­la­tion­ships by Olinka Vis­tica and Drazen Gru­bisic

The Simple Things - - FRESH | DECEMBER THINGS -

Au­thors Olinka and Drazen were in love and then they weren’t, but when they split up they were left with the vex­ing ques­tion of what to do with the ob­jects loaded “with mean­ing and mem­o­ries”. It in­spired them to cre­ate “a place to store all the painful trig­gers of past love… a nicer, more po­etic so­lu­tion than divvy­ing up pos­ses­sions, or worse, giv­ing in to out­bursts of emo­tional van­dal­ism”. Each pho­to­graph in this poignant col­lec­tion is la­belled with a note about the re­la­tion­ship it rep­re­sents – from the flip­pant, to the sweetly melan­choly to the down­right sav­age – and hint at how that re­la­tion­ship came un­done. Com­pelling and ad­dic­tive. ( Wei­den­feld & Ni­col­son)
