Joanna Rajkowska, ‘I shall not enter into your heaven’, Teatr Powszechny, Warsaw, 18 – 19 November 2017
The installation, I shall not enter into your heaven, is a response to the uncontrolled cutting down of millions of trees n Poland which started in December 2016. Many of these trees were standing in the oldest surviving area of the Białowieża Forest.
Forming a barricade of the roots from trees that were recently cut down, Rajkowska exposes the evidence of a catastrophe. “It is an attempt to indicate an ecological disaster and the powerlessness of reaction to what happened and is still happening. The roots are no longer alive. However they might begin a new cycle of life for other organisms”.
