Call +49 for monument
Performance and Installation, 2016
Desk 140 × 90 × 90cm, chair, telephone, table photo ‚Museum Wola‘, telephone book, 16 Polaroid pictures each 10 × 6,2cm, marker pen
Polaroid pictures lie on a desk in the Museum Wola in Warsaw. They show people, individually, in small or large groups, during a performance at the opening of the exhibition ‚Wola Warm+up‘. During the performance randomly selected telephone numbers in Germany were called and the connection was transmitted via microphone and speaker into the exhibition space. The resulting situations were captured in a Polaroid picture and written with the time of the call and ‚Wola monument‘.
The desk with various materials and the Polaroid pictures remained after the performance as an installation piece for the exhibition.
‚Wola Warm+up‘ was an exhibition with national and international young artists who dealt with the absence of a monument in Wola that reminds us of the German occupation. In contrast to the monuments existing in the city I wanted to create a moment left to itself.
