Wetland Tool-kit (site-specific installation)
The exhibition of works by Bianka Rolando consists of drawings and the documentation of activities in the Dębiński Bosque, generally circulating around the metaphor of a riparian forest. Through words (poems) and drawings (sketches, signs), the artist faces off the unlucky history of the area, which has seen hangings as well as drownings of women accused of witchcraft. Through words, movement and image, Rolando attempts to mitigate these uneasy spirits and provide some respite beyond the bounds of the riparian forest. These discreet rituals are meant to cleanse the area, chase out the evil. It scratches at some very old wounds in order to heal them for good.
