Opatov, a suburb in the south-east of Prague, permeates the centre of Prague. The people will see and hear  about Opatov on many places in different times of the day.  At a certain moment  Opatov triggers the curiosity of the tourists, visitors of the Prague Quadrennial and the residents in such a way that they want coming to Opatov. Hieke Pars makes locations on the periphery of the city visible in the centre of Prague. She works closely with the residents of a Prague suburb, and asks them to use a flashlight to illuminate characteristic spots in their neighbourhood. Their images and stories are subsequently displayed in the centre of town so that the reality of the periphery subtly permeates the heart of the city.
