The spatial installation Silence by the renowned Polish artist Paweł Althamer will be located on Garage Square, in front of Garage Museum of Contemporary Art. It is a site for collective meditation, where the viewer-participant becomes part of a real time performance.
Each element of the garden—be it a fallen tree or a bush—is a hidden quote, while the composition as a whole is a space where the restless modern city dweller can switch the mode of time, as if transported to the picturesque space of previous eras, when the rhythms and speeds of life had not accelerated to the limit. According to Althamer, Silence is a space where everything happens here and now, and this is the only way for a person to truly find time for themselves.
The project is a Garage Square Commission and will include a series of performative events.
Curator: Andrey Misiano
