Marcin Malaszczak: Sieniawka – video installation bei Centrum
Marcin Malaszczak’s installation explores his personal connection to the mental health institution that dominated the polish village Sieniawka, where he grew up. Amidst a formal filmic language that deals with space and time and places the viewer both as an ‘insider’ and outsider’, borders of ‘normal’ and institutional life, sanity, chaos, and ultimately humanity, nature and civilisation are crossed and re-crossed. Marcin Malaszczak is a film and video director based in Berlin and currently studying at the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie, Berlin. He has been working on a series of projects inspired by Sieniawka since Autumn 2009, including a feature film of the same name. For Centrum, Marcin has been experimenting with both formal and conceptual elements of his artistic process as a filmmaker to develop new installation based work. Sieniawka is the name of a polish village in which lies the Hospital for the Mentally / Nervously Ill and Alcoholics, which was founded in 1964 on the site of a Nazi sub-concentration camp for Labour. Part of: Season 3: Through a glass darkly, A season of film and moving image exploring light and time, the outer physical world and inner psychological space.
