Katarzyna Krakowiak’s proposal for NARRACJE Festival is a composition for earth, light and sound, created through the movement of these elements. In terms of structure, Krakowiak’s work, situated somewhere between performance and sculpture, alludes to land-art projects. Yet what is key here is the position of spectators and the perspective they bring with them. The work concerns shifting the horizon, which the artist understands very broadly: from seeing the space in a purely visual sense to the horizon of social or political thought, or even the individual imagination. Shifting one’s perspective does not automatically yield positive results; it is particularly risky when it happens in a brutal and irreversible way.
