  • the second life

    Ethnographic Museum in Zbąszyń, Experiment Festival, 2015 After pandemic of happiness, the second life was my second living project done outside the typical art institutions. This time it was an ethnographic museum where I moved in with the insects which are strongly prohibited in such places. All living beings could be dangerous for the exhibitions. Ethnographic museum in Zbąszyń is devoted to rural life and craft traditions in the area. All rooms are a simulation of residential interiors, a mock-up life. I tried to restore the real life by inviting insects for one week. Insects were placed in different parts of the exhibition, surprising the audience. Something deemed a danger and filth became an object of appreciation. A hierarchy has changed by this very simple trick.
