The curtain was made during the Sandra Gallery residency at the Arsenal Municipal Gallery in Poznan. It depicts masks from an ancient Greek theater: sad and joyful. From the folds of a heavy, draped velour hang dried pods of the Brachychiton acerifolius tree that I collected in Greece during my year-long stay in Athens. The pods have been painted, some resembling eyes with fake eyelashes attached, others teeth or ghosts with sad and happy faces scratched out.

sama już nie wiem co jest prawdą co spektaklem
co życiem co fikcją
gubię się w gąszczu informacji
kto ma rację, kto nie ma racji
spektakl medialny 
rytuał sakralny
korek analny
połykam i wypluwam
wciągam i wydycham
na raz żyje i zdycham
