Footage of the first exhibition of the installation Sides by Janusz Bałdyga, which was held in 1994 at the AR Gallery in Warsaw.

The artist fixed a massive wooden beam in a single point on the wall, supported only by a wooden bevel, whose end rested on the floor. The installation, which seemed to teeter on the verge of collapse, was later suspended on the wall by means of a single nail, which created the impression of overcoming the force of gravitation.
