[COVIDS] is a new series by Henryk Kwiatek, a combination of his fascinations for public space actions, sculptures and graphics. Handmade silk screen serigraphies depict the spirit of the times of the pandemia. Our playgroudns turned into Convids, monuments of the pandemia, not wrapped up by Christo, but the virus.
— Since my early childhood I was fascinated with playgrounds. All the types of rockets, planetoids, serpents and merry-go-rounds that would take me out there... Despite aging the excitement is not gone, especially to the ones that I actively tested as a kid. I have been wondering for a long time how to depict reminiscent of my childhood, but all of my attempt collapsed at the sight of playgrounds wrapped up in foil. Gutted from its primary open-to-all function infected turn into monuments of the Covid pandemia. Without pedestals, but in a new form, isolated stick out mortifying public space, as if "glorifying the deeds". Covids, graphic depiction of the current times, attractive sculpture form clashing with monumental distance: do not touch. — Henryk Kwiatek.
