Matylda Sałajewska / Coma Custos / PL

Site-specific inštalácia
Poľský inštitút, Námestie SNP 17
Coma Custos, a site-specific installation created especially for this occasion is adapted to the architecture of the Polish Institute. COMA CUSTOS builds on the made-up and, at the same time, well-known character of a custodian who took a nap in a great world museum hall and dreamt a strange dream. From the windows of the building, endlessly long organic forms emerged, having gradually captured the whole architecture, they weaved among the windows as a living organism in a symbiosis with the façade of the building, as if it breathed, as if it were alive. The custodian is tortured by the dream and cannot have a good sleep nor wake up.
