installation, 2015

work commissioned by the Narodowe Centrum Kultury, nck.pl

premiere presentation

A multichannel video installation about hypocrisy of the mankind and the imbalance of the world. The title message is being read to the camera by several Polish voice-overs well known from television and film, who are usually hidden from the sight of the viewers. It is a video-monument of the Polish voice-over lectors. The message is a simple manifesto, the artist’s voice in regard to making the world a better place. The work asks a simple question: Why the world is not safe and peaceful and the humankind can’t be happy?
