• Paulina Ołowska, Mateusz Romaszkan, Museum, 2007

Paulina Ołowska’s neon sign (created in collaboration with Mateusz Romaszkan) is an institutional "relict", a testimony of the early and conflict-ridden times of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. The temporary seat of the institution is located in a typical block of flats from the 1960’s. The space was once commercial, holding storage facilities, a café and office space of the furniture store next door . Ołowska has emphasized the harsh and "heroic" times of the museum by applying simple typography and cheap light bulbs.
