• Michał Budny, Bed for a Homeless Person, 2005

    photo by Monument Service

In this exhibition, Bed for a Homeless Person is an impermanent sculpture made of corrugated cardboard and adhesive tape. The artist describes it as “a story of unconsciously-created architecture”. Budny has reconstructed an object he noticed in the street—a surrogate home or bed—emphasising its noble form and composition in contrast to the cheap, lowly material. Here, refined, abstract architecture clashes with the temporary nature of the cardboard sleeping-place. Despite its down-to-earth title, Bed for a Homeless Person is an object filled with delicate geometrical beauty.
