These photos are of the now demolished Balneological hospital (Hydroklinika) of Druskinik, Lithuania, shortly before it was demolished in 2004 as photographed by Nicolas Grospierre. The hospital was designed by Romaldas and Ausra Silinskan, and built between 1975 and 1981. Grospierre, based in Poland, photographs the skeletal remains of the communist era in various eastern-European states. Frozen in their utopian moments, full of a decrepit grandeur, these leftovers wore the erosion inflicted by time while continuing to stand as artifacts of ideology.
