Vjenceslav Richter Museum
Zagreb, Croatia, 2017
This piece is exclusively about Nada Kareš-Richter (1926-2015). I don’t know so much about Nada but I felt extremely connected to her soul while visiting her home at Vrhovec 38, Zagreb, Croatia, in summer 2017. She used to live in this building with her husband Vjenceslav Richter from 1964 till 2002 when Mr. Richter passed away. Thereafter, for 11 more years, she lived there alone, until 2013 when she left the house to the hospital and passed away two years later.
… I went upstairs taking the tiny wooden stairs; right in the moment I stepped in the living room on the second floor, I encountered with a powerful wave of energy coming from the space. Everything on this floor has been carefully preserved just the way it was when she left the house in 2011. I was amazed how profoundly I could feel the presence of Nada and Vjenceslav in their house to host the visitors. I started taking a close look at the objects lying around the place and it was then when I could sense the gentle touch of Nada on every little detail of that beautiful and cozy living room. I could feel her heart that has been put in to decorating and taking care of the house designed by his husband.
