‘We approach animals in public spaces without a question, […] as if they were ours’At the sound of rain drops over tin roofs we are transported to an imaginary journey on the metro, where people are all seating together – yet, it feels they are all far away from each other, inhabiting the isolation of their own bubbles. The space that lies in the contrast of the physical, the real, and the illusory, is perhaps where the seed of the self, the ‘you’, grows and flourishes. The place from where we look at ourselves and we question how others see us. Marta Skoczeń’s reflections take us into the un-familiarness of the everyday.
