Exhibition:Banished from Warsaw1944- the Plight of Children


      THE PREMISE OF THE EXHIBIT
     The exhibit is about children who were forced out of Warsaw after the Warsaw Uprising of 1944.
     The assumption is a concurrent interaction of two layers: content and presentation.
     The content is made up of documentation - first of all written historical documentation, as well as photographic documentation which has not been published before or has been published very rarely.
      In terms of the presentation, the structure of the space makes reference to railway platforms, the routes of railway wagons, or the shelves of warehouses, things that were abandoned, or maybe things that were found. Large format reprints of photographs with significant content, along with descriptions; reprints of photographs that render the wagons transporting people who were forced out; design props relating to transport wagons (bolts, bars, etc.) are all incorporated into the structure.
      
Design props connected with the world from which the transported children were torn are also in the presentation structure, traces of childhood - toys called  "huggables", stuffed animals, rag dolls, etc.
      They are prepared as destroyed objects with visible traces of disappearing color, functioning as a symbol of fading and lost childhood.
      Some components of the structure of the space have the character of a unit, which makes it possible to write in various arrangments into various parts of the exhibit, guiding the visitor continously through it.
     The space requires darkness and separation from a neighboring reality. Local lighting for specific objects is supplemented with reflectors that have the character of light in camps.   
      The exhibit will include sound, which will be a composition of the sounds of a riding train with fading vocals of old lullabies for children.
