WIND LETS THE COLOURS THROUGH
installation / 2017
lawn on Północna Street
Gardens of old fishermen’s houses, surroundings of housing blocks and Brzeźno’s small architectural objects decorated with artificial flowers – all of them inspired Iza Rogucka’s installation for this year’s NARRACJE. The artist built her work using objects that, in her own words, automatically bring to mind the holiday season: plastic cutlery. Rogucka turned it into geometric forms that allude to the rhythmically recurrent motifs from entrance gates to nearby houses and the colourful implements one may find on playgrounds. The resulting installation describes the physical properties of the district, overflowing with colourful plastics, at the same time drawing attention to its light-hearted, idyllic atmosphere. Rogucka’s work also seems like a quite pleasant form of recycling, which comes highly recommended to anyone, not just the enthusiasts of external decorations from Brzeźno.
Iza Rogucka’s installation is carried out as part of the open call for works.
