PANORAMA 8
September 30 - October 24, 2021

Just next to the Spectra building lies Panorama – the oldest shopping mall in Warsaw. Constructed in 1993, its years of splendour are already gone. This is a ghost space, where half of the units are closed and the rest run, so to say, reluctantly. Time has frozen here.

There is a vast car park in front of the facility. A metal post and a concrete ball are installed alternately along the car park’s boundary. These objects structure the space together but at the same time keep distance from each other. Starting with these figures, I’ve decided to build a symbolic family of products and to stage their display. The installation will become an imagined shop window containing sculptures alluding to items of street furniture – remnants of the past, and photographs – extracts from the reality, complementing each segment.
