“Through the 111 black and white photos in “The Anatomy of Decay”, Oliver Merce is creating a visual documentation of a history swept under the rug, annihilated, together with its forgotten tragedies. The photos, taken during a 2 years, are picketing in a very discreet and inflexible manner the collective memory of “Crivina” and “New Town” neighborhood, both of them belonging Anina City. A time for living now unveils itself as a time for confession.” - Florin Șipoș
