Spirits are assumed to be a group of mutually complementary objects referring in their idea to the issues of memory and identity – important from the point of view of self-identification not only for individuals, but also for entire communities or nations. The mechanism of care for identity and knowledge of origin is the same in each case – memory care. This role is played by verbal applications, books, photographs kept in the wallet or notes on the margins of school notebooks – without refreshing, images fade and concepts escape under the weight of time. The realization is a reflection on the transformation of events into a memory, into a spirit.
