Bialystok – Kinooko

This urban art project was installed in 2011, designed by Aleksandra Czerniawska, a local artist. The artwork is meant to show different things depending on which the direction the viewer looks at it from. From one side it’s a eye in a camera frame.

From the other, it’s some sort of dish. At least, I think that’s what it’s meant to be, this is one of the art installations which doesn’t have an English translation to explain the concept a bit more. Indeed, I suspect that I might have made that bit up, but that’s what it looks like to me. Anyway, it’s eye catching though, but excuse the pun there… It’s apparently a nod towards the work of Dżiga Wiertów, a Soviet documentary maker who was born in the city.
