In the Slovak Language, the Tire is a synonym worth of the soul. Something that means invisible, and inside immortal as well. Project “The Year Without
Summer” was a two-days workshop of mass inflation - compaction of treated souls. Each of them is important, they are from east to west, small, big, and they all
have one thing in common. Their imperfection, one, three or seven defects. There is a different story behind each one. Each participant inflates his or her own soul
with a soul (compressor). The next day, we tied all the souls filled with souls into one large annular shape, creating the work TREATMENT OF SOULS. At the same
time, they were released together to Lake Draždiak in Petržalka.
TREATMENT

TREATMENT OF TIRES-SOULS
Find the ease of being.
Thicken the breath
in the treated soul
unilateral breathing.
Close the blank.
Be a part of the whole,
without difference.
The band connects the roads,
from the largest to the smallest.
Release your souls from the earth.
They will be lost.
I’ll find the place.
Hovering form,
get rid of the burden in time.
It merges with the souls of the settlement.
