Winged is a recording of a biplane flight over Warsaw made by Artur Żmijewski, alongside Paweł Althamer and the participants of the Nowolipie Group. The group, operating at the Municipal Arts Centre in Nowolipki St. in Warsaw’s Wola district, is made up of people suffering from multiple sclerosis. The group members have been meeting Paweł Althamer for more than 14 years for weekly ceramic workshops, which serve the purpose of therapy and rehabilitation. One of the participants, Rafał, makes clay Kukuruznik airplane models in bulk. Althamer made his dream of a biplane flight come true, taking the entire group on journey into the sky.
