How to rest

"How to rest" is a group portrait disguised as a landscape, on a 1:1 scale. The show is synchronized with the people who make up the institution in which it is held. One of the works gets turned off during breaks and after the working hours of the curator, assistants, security guards or the director. The exhibition is open 24/7 at Zona Sztuki Aktualnej in Szczecin (PL).

“How to rest” is a group portrait disguised as a landscape, on a 1:1 scale. The exhibition is synchronized with the people who make up the institution in which it is held. One of the works gets turned off during breaks and after the working hours of the curator, assistants, security guards or the director. The duration of employees involvement is not fully measurable. However, the lack of a time frame can lead to overwork.
Domicz suggests using a porous script that is only critical because of its generosity. Despite the variable timeframes of the artworks on display, the exhibition is open 24/7. The answer to the question posed in the title is likely to be found on a piece of paper hung in the artist’s studio. It says “be your own assistant”.

List of works:

Dispenser
2022, steel, foam
The spiral mirrors the shape of the dispenser of the vending machine. It is mounted around the wall and while rotating it moves the building (instead of, for example, a can).

Siblings
2022, acrylic glass
Two copies of fenders, which are usually mounted between escalators moving in opposite directions.

Vending machine working hours
2022, vending machine, controller
Vending machine working at the same time as selected gallery employees.

The client should not touch the corners of the walls while riding up the escalator
2021, acrylic glass
A copy of a found object.
