Corona Retreat

This is a journey within. Within architecture. Within what was once the ultimate emblem of Yugoslav modernism.


An introspect of whatever remains within walls. Homes. Balconies. Deep down pandemic. Deep within minds, hearts, and souls of people of the neighbourhood of Borik, Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. “Corona Retreat” by Sonja Lakic is a journey to the interior of the virus: this portrayal of the home, the most intimate geographies of all, narrates #stayhome​ experience and perplex personal relationships with the pandemic itself.
