An abandoned building in Warsaw has been covered in aluminium foil! Specially designed for the inhabitants of the Praga North district by Polish artist Piotr Janowski it covers the building from head to toe.
Completely covering an old tenement building dating from 1870, the area is full of history and the piece itself is meant to draw attention to that. “I believe that my aluminum installation will, for a moment, turn into a symbolic silver bridge” says Janowski. “Which will combine the dreams of the pre-war past and then the dramatic years of the city’s inhabitants during the occupation with the contemporary positive changes that are taking place so definitely in this fascinating Warsaw district.”
