there was a roof, there was a home
2013 - "there was a roof, there was a home", work designed for NARRACJE festival, collaboration with Aleksandra Ciapka, installation, intervention in public space, action with the local community, video.
“there was a roof, there was a home” is a project based on the juxtaposition of two contradictory spaces: private and public. We refer to the memories of warmth and splendor that we identify with a house and try to rediscover them. Shelter over neighborhood dumpster will be transformed into a house, filled with visual stories and records of daily conversations. Through this treatment we want to examine what separates private from public, and for a while even break the last one apart. The Długie Ogrody area remains an unexplored enclave, full of empty properties and picturesque ruins, that force us to think about absence. And that absence, shortage, can be interpreted as the beginning of a story yet untold. This beginning we will try to constitute.
