Every month I take a flight from Moscow to Pyatigorsk.
My two grandmothers live there alone in a house.
The house is 75 years old.
My grandmothers are 95 and 100 years old.
Pyatigorsk in Russian means “five hills”.

People and things have changed a lot, and the two sisters are the same as they were many years ago. They spend the days inside the house, surrounded by the numerous things they have gathered during life.
I wanted this book to be as fragile as they are, and as chaotic and mazing as their house is. The cover is made of candy box paper. Grandmothers keep a lot of stuff in old candy boxes, all sorts of things no one ever remembers where they even come from.
