SENSITIZATION TO COLOUR
HD 2009, 6 min. 58 sec.
In ‚Sensitization to Colour‘ Polska questions the influence of documentation on the work of art by setting a hypothetical reconstruction of the space in which Polish conceptual artists, Włodzimierz Borowski‘s performance took place. The space of the event, which took place in 1962 and involved staging many works of Borowski, was described as ‘colourful, with neon lights and coloured smoke, but the preserved documentation exists only as a set of black-and- white photographs. In ‘Sensitization to Colour’ Polska recreated the room on the basis of preserved photographic documentation and descriptions.
