exhibition: ”From Yesterday till Today” Artists’ Museum, Łódź, Poland, 1996
My first installations in space were formal solutions related to a specific space. The final decisions about the shape of the works – it had been made on the spot. I had previously reviewed the place or documentation under I designed the work. I often used in them a light source different from that in the existing space or corresponding with it – entering the ”discussion, relations”. I wanted to create a different atmosphere, impression of ephemeral structure, and at the same time emphasize the place – undefined, transient, temporary. For the most part, the material I used was paraffin, wax, pigments, asphalt, latex, wood, plasterboard, plywood, and metal.
Documentation of these activities has been preserved in a limited form on analog materials or VHS records. The works themselves, unfortunately, were also destroyed during the fire that consumed part of the building of the Artists’Museum in Łódź, where they were stored.
