Window dressing ~ inauguration

etalage winter

#0.1 in collaboration with Marie-Sarah Simon

Dear collegues and friends of Upominki,

In many Polish homes an empty place is being set at the Christmas table in case a person down on luck should show up and ask for shelter. And while this rarely happens nowadays, the tradition nevertheless requires that lone strangers be taken in and treated as family…

Through this concise message I would like to extend warm Christmas Blessings to all of you who sympathize and follow my work.

There are so many things to say and so little words. Therefore my strong wish is to just leave 2016 and look forward to another year ahead!
Moreover, let’s stay together and work things out, for better days!

To wrap up with something to look up to…

What you can see on the image above is a temporary installation in the new space of Upominki on Sint-Mariastraat 132B in Rotterdam. It was made in collaboration with a great friend and artist Marie-Sarah Simon especially for this winter season. The installation (let’s just give it a name – #0.1) begins a new project that will be unfolding in the upcoming months, more information about it will follow soon.

With best wishes full of love and hope for the New Year to come.

Window dressing is an ongoing project since 2017 that gradually unfolds in the frontal window of Upominki. The project takes a form of smooth gestures that come and go, while being carried out by various invited artists. As the months go by, Upominki’s window becomes an on-site dialogue where the individual and the collective identity meet. Window dressing is made possible with the joint effort of beloved family and friends.
