After a one year delay you will be able to see the installation “RzeczyViste”. This time it will appear in a few Polish cities. First stop is Suprasl. The installation can be seen in front of the community house on July 4.

“RzeczyViste” is an installation, whose aim is to pay attention to the faiths of the citizens of Poland deported deep into the Soviet Union in 1940-1941. Its unusual form is intended to intrigue and surprise the audience. It is a metaphor for an open suitcase. The items presented in it were selected to correspond to those that accompanied the people deported to Sybir.

The Author of the installation is Karolina Mosiej-Zambrano. Content-related supervision was conducted by Paweł Kalisz.

Six Places

“RzeczyViste” can be seen in six Polish cities. After Suprasl, the next stop will be Tykocin. In each place the employees of the Sybir Memorial Museum will tell about the installation and the Sybir Memorial Museum.
