“The city in the portrait”, Festival Malta, Poznań

The aim of this project was to give new meanings, representations of the personal and the public, to objects founded within the urban space and to the faces of residents. The portraits was created during the Festival, in front of an audience, based on the residents’ family archives and photographs taken in plac Wolności. Painted on used packaging and wooden planks, the portraits asked the following: To what extent does the privacy of a face change the status of an object, and what or who will be portrayed?
