night butterflies

(video installation, double-sided video projection with sound, video HD, 16:9, 6'14'', 2018)

The artwork consists of two projections facing opposite directions and a separate soundtrack. Each of these elements are presented out of sync. Both of the projections portray a process of reparation: one of them showing the restoration of sight, the cataract surgery, one of the causes of blindness, the other, a monotonous and laborious process of retouching photographs which is a procedure of removing white stains from the silver-based film, a picture of reparation of a photograph. The projections are accompanied by a soundtrack - a text read in two languages: Polish and German about the inability of capturing memories, the subjectivity of memory and impossibility of constructing single objective truth.
