  • 2012 – Live fast, die young. Site-specific-installation. Bielsko-Biała.

Our site-specific-installation “Live fast, die young” was developed during the artists residency “Beyond Time” in Poland. We searched for the traditional cultures in the city and we mixed it with the urban cultures of nowadays. With this installation we wanted to make a reaction in people in order to see if they could recognize their culture and how big was the impact. The final result was a really funny experience with people taking pictures with these cartoons and laughing while walking around them. One of the cartoon is one girl with the sentence in polish “Live fast, die young”. Again, a strange relation: the girl and the meaning of the sentence.

All of them are wearing old school costumes from Poland, but at the same time they are posing like if they were “cool people”. One of them is holding a skateboard and an old woman has a big old cassette.

They are reminding young people how “cool” they are showing their folklore and how proud they are of this fact, just like the youth is nowadays with their different styles.
