Jana Šturdíková spent more than ten years photographing the life of objects in an ordinary functionalist house built in Bratislava by the Jewish architect Alexander Skutecki (1883-1944). From the boiler room to the lightning rod, she searched for original elements in the ten apartments that have survived since the house was built in 1936. She observed how they have changed due to use, how much they have been preserved or replaced. She traces in detail how the great history of the 20th and 21st centuries, typical for the countries of Central Europe - Aryanisation, World War II, nationalisation, restitution - has passed through the house, and how it has been reflected in the seemingly insignificant details that we are used to touching every day. It is this commonplace ordinariness, which we regularly encounter, that shapes our approach to things and our taste.
