U petom činu selimo se na sredinu tiho raspadajuće Ružićeve ulice, jedne od brojnih riječkih prostora-spavača u kojoj je smješten mural Pimplanje street umjetnika Lonca. Kroz osobnu poveznicu njegove obitelji s Rijekom, uvodi nas u rascjepe skrivene ispod zaglađenih površina pedantnih poteza i premaza nanesenih beskonačno preciznim nijansiranjima preko 100 kantica spreja, uredno posloženih i presloženih po tonovima. Lonac portretira svog oca koji je prvi nacrt za maketu broda nabavio baš iz Rijeke. Iako je ta prva maketa u međuvremenu nestala, sin ju zamjenjuje novom, ne bi li na muralu rekonstruirao obiteljski narativ prizorom oca koji je promatra preciznim znalačkim pogledom. Svojim radom Lonac pokazuje kako se u njegovoj obitelji osobine, poput pimplanja, prenose kroz generacije, možda kao i sama tradicija brodogradnje koja im je poveznica s Rijekom, makar kroz makete brodova. Tradicija brodogradnje godinama čini sastavni dio karaktera, identitetske površine grada koju se uporno popravlja i po kojoj se iznova pimpla, ne bi li se opsesivno zagladila, a pukotine postale manje uočljive.

In the fifth act, we move to the middle of the decaying Ružićeva Street, one of the many sleeping spaces of Rijeka, where the street artist known as Lonac painted his mural Nitpicking. Through a personal connection that his family shares with this city, Lonac takes us into the dints and hollows hidden under the smooth, carefully applied layers of color. He portraits his father, who bought his first design for a scale model of a ship here, in Rijeka. The ship has disappeared in the meantime, but his son replaces it with a new one, in order to reconstruct the family narrative in the image of his father, who observes the scale model with a sharp eye. In this work, Lonac shows us that in his family, nitpicking is passed down from generation to generation, just like shipbuilding tradition, which symbolizes his family’s connection with Rijeka, at least through the scale model of a ship. Shipbuilding tradition has been an inseparable part of Rijeka’s identity – the identity that is nitpicked over and over again, with the hope that the cracks would become less conspicuous.
