INSTALLATION IN PUBLIC SPACE
The istallation ‘Weeds’ can be seen in Warsaw Powiśle from May 2016. The meadow that has been transferred from the resettled villages has been permanently placed in Wybrzeże Kościuszkowskie, close to Lipowa Street.
Bogna Świątkowska: “Migrations connected with a conflict are one of the biggest problems that is being faced by Europe nowadays. The installation by Karolina Grzywnowicz evokes the events related to the change of Polish borders. During this process over half a million of population inhabiting south-eastern part of Poland was resettled. This installation provokes deeper reflections on a topic of migration, the situation of displaced people, refugees and emigrants – all these who have to find a new place so that they can find the balance and a safe place to live.”
