Kamila Szejnoch - Swing, 2008
Winner of the Szpilman Award, which is an international award for ephemeral/temporary art, Swing was installed on the Berling Army Soldier Monument in Warsaw, Poland.
“To suggest a change in the function of a monument is an attempt to build a bridge between the past and present, to add a contemporary layer distinct from its original function. It is an example of how much history can differ from the perspectives of individual and collective memory. My aim is to make this complexity and ambiguity more conspicuous, to show the relation between an individual and the historical machine.”
