Moving of the installation from the Biennale WRO 2015: SUW exhibition in the flat at 4 Lukasz Górnicki Street.

The project engages local residents of the tenement house at Górnickiego St. 4 and its neighbourhood. The artists recorded chats with locals, gathering their complaints, confessions and hopes. They also collected useless fabrics – textiles, clothes, curtains or tablecloths. Using these materials, they prepared doormats with quotes, comprising interviews with locals. All of these mats were placed on the staircase. Following Mrs. Dulska’s thought: “Dirt has to be washed in your own home”, the artists added – start making order from your own backyard.
