Anna Baumgart uses the strategy of found footage to become the heroine of the legendary Polish comedy Teddy Bear [Miś] by Stanisław Bareja from 1981. Tapping into the potential offered by the film technique, the artist replaces the actress’s face with her own. The cycle comprises two parts The Cranes Are Flying and Teddy Bear.
