Memory War - nie ma i nie było

kitchen cabinet, cement, photography
80 x 30 x 30 cm, 2012

One object is real and has a concreted interior, and the other is its photographic counterpart. History is not an exact science and depends on the interpretation. Treating it in a performative way tempts with the ease of abuse and distortion. The desire to gain an advantage in the field of the version of socially binding truth leads to actions in the style of ‘concreting’ - preferably forever - of a certain version or interpretation of events. Without access to the originals of events, we create paradigms based on incomplete or even false certificates. ‘Memory War’ is a hide-and-seek game resulting from the profit and loss economy.
