Badalov’s audiovisual project VOAIZOVA (War is Over), is based on his personal experience of linguistic inconveniences while travelling. In foreign countries, we often come across words written in the same alphabet as ours, but with different meaning, sound or pronunciation. The nomad life of an artist (or traveler, migrant, or refugee) does not only cause him or her a struggling adaptation period of cultural integration, but can primarily turn him or her into a prisoner of language. Badalov's projects play with this kind of linguistic notions in order to emphasize larger geo-political questions.
