Frieze Sculpture 2019


Joanna Rajkowska, The Hatchling (2019)


The Hatchling is a sculpture of a scaled-up egg of the blackbird (Turdus merula), one of Britain’s most common birds, known for its well-liked song.   From inside the sculpture, sounds of hatching chicks can be heard. Coming close to the sculpture, we are invited to touch and listen attentively.


The sculpture reminds us of the many birds that live with us in cities – something we tend to forget. As an interruption in the trajectories of everyday life, what demands our attention is young, fragile and defenceless life. The Hatchling is a reminder of the fragility of the natural environment, the survival of which determines our own existence.
