Shelter | Muzeum Współczesne Wrocław | Akademia Filmu Dokumentalnego Dok.Art | 27.10.2012

As a former role of the museum building was that of a bomb shelter, the sense of safety one can experience here may be rather superficial. ‘Traps’ have been situated in the lift areas, making the sense of safety even more remote and perturbing the visitor further. Camouflage, in principle, aids safety, but here, merging the object with the floor, it causes a risk for the visitor of not noticing the obstacle in time.
Interdependence – raised constructions are installed above one another. A potential accident at the top would affect all three of them.
Sleep is seen as a surrender of vigilance, escaping fears and resigning oneself to the natural course of events.
