La danse du destin

Sarajevo, 12 ans après

Fikret’s birds captive

Listen to testimony

The birds of Fikret Libovac, sculptor and professor at the Fine Art Academy finally found freedom and their colours returned. During the war they were locked up in their cage like the inhabitants of the town martyrdom.
“I remember the first time we met twelve years ago, during the siege of the city. You were interested by the few artists who refused to flee Bosnia - Herzegovina. It was their strength: the strength of the spirit, that of my bird in a cage. I was in a period where I carved birds in cages. I was a bird and my cage was this city. But now, ten years and more of peace: no more cage, freedom reigns, and colourfull birds are nesting. Now, it’s another world.”
