The “Cosmos” installation at The Earth Museum in Warsaw
On July 14th, the “Cosmos” installation became part of the Museum of the Earth in Warsaw as a preview for the doctoral exhibition “The Birth of Colors,” which is scheduled to take place in the Branicki White Palace from September 14th to December 28th, 2023.
The “Cosmos” installation is a spatial, mobile form inspired by Hevelius’s work “Machinae Coelestis.” The object rotates around its own axis under the influence of the wind. Additionally, selected elements of the installation rotate independently. The front and back feature different graphics and colors. In calm weather, the installation remains static. In strong winds, it moves dynamically, changing direction and pace. It is a dependent and integrated element, coexisting with the forces of nature.
The installation was created for the exhibition “The Moon and Sobieski’s Shield: Hevelius Then and Contemporary Art” at the Museum of the Palace of King John III in Wilanów, from April to August 2022.
