In Warsaw, on the east bank of the Vistula, across the river from the Museum of Modern Art an investment Port Praski (eng. Praga Harbour) is being realized. 1885-2012 the area serves as a harbour surrounded by rather poor tenement buildings and a green wasteland, there was a slaughterhouse, too. The ambitious, emerging housing developement should change the place’s aura for a European-class district (the architects even refer to London City).
The investment cannot be finished until a water lock is built. In our installation we would like to touch upon Port Praski and point out a lock’s function - as a machine that changes level of something that goes through it.
For the exposition we chose a room that contains different levels itself - to get into you have to go downstairs, inside there are also steps. The space is placed close to Port Praski.
