Remember that amazing collaboration with Chazme a year ago or “Blinkofaneye”, a pretty fascinating piece created last September? Well, Polish sculptor Tomasz Gornicki is back with yet another brilliant and haunting urban installation.
Titled “On the edge of shadow”, the new piece irradiate a deep feeling of melancholia and loneliness. According to Gornicki, shadows serve both as a place where we, consciously or unconsciously leave behind people and their suffering, a suffering we don’t want to see, and as a refuge where we can hide. The artist describes the idea of the shadow as “[A] place of sorrow, harm, wrongdoing, a cursed space at which edge we find a borderline between what is normal and what has been relegated.”
