In October and November 2020, we partnered in a project implemented in Służewiec as part of Tbilisi Architecture Biennial 2020. Together with the authors from Vienna: Joanna Zabielska and Bilal Alame and from Warsaw: Jacek Walawender and Aleksandra Muller, we explored the subject of housing, relation with space by installing a room, a private space, part of a flat in public areas (in yards, lawns, sidewalks). The project was the second approach to the subject of housing (about the first, carried out by Joanna Zabielska during the first edition of the Biennale in the Gldani district in Tibilisi, you can read here: http://archive.biennial.ge/joanna-zabielska/). In a pandemic situation, we wanted to create a space for conversation without conversation, for reflection on what connects us, what do we have in common, to transfer private kitchen conversations, discussions in the living room and bedroom dreams into the public space of Służewiec. The installation was constantly changing its place and shape: for about two weeks it was a bathroom, a kitchen, a large room, a bedroom.
The project was carried out within the framework of TAB (Tbilisi Architecture Biennial: https://biennial.ge/) and ACT UP Project organized by Dekabristen E.v. , with the support of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs and funding from the European Union Creative Europe program – https://dekabristen.org/en/projects/actup.
