Copula – a series of art interventions in public space
Pawel Kowzan: Untitled (All solids melt into Air), sound installation, 13 – 19 May, entrance to the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art

The “wired facade” by Pawel Kowzan (
www.pawelkowzan.com) at the entrance to the Museum building maps architecture itself through a whistling sound and becomes a signal of a fluid boundary between the concealed and the visible, between protection and exposure, and can provoke very different reactions, confusion, discomfort, laughter. Fuelled by the contradictions arising from its name – the harmless word Untitled quotes The Communist Manifesto, while the other part of the title, All solid melts into Air is a proverbial warning against capitalism’s excessive appetite, which turns the invisible installation suddenly into a warning signal placed, believe it or not, next to a public institution. Furthermore, a whistling human voice is heard as an expression of individuality and subjectivity. Devoid of a body producing it, it also appears as a phantom image.
