for the last couple of days I’ve been trying to contact you, but I’ve just realized that you’re gone till the 8th. I’ve already invited everyone. It’s gonna be 10 people altogether. We need to have a rehearsal, but the whole thing shouldn’t be longer than 15 minutes. I talked to Wojtek and he’s going to New York soon. We have to practice with him as well. Did you menage to cut the can? I should have the whole list of works with translations ready by the end of the day.

Anyway, did I tell you that I’ll have a new assistant? Robert is leaving to study abroad and Agata will replace him. She’s gonna be in San Francisco in June, maybe the two of you could meet there? Besides, Adam is in hospital because of kidney inflammation, but they should discharge him in a week. I visited him yesterday, hospitals in Warsaw are pretty gross. Send him an email maybe, but you know how bad he is with replying.

Paweł Althamer, Wicket gate / Furtka, 2016


At the gallery there is only a mobile phone with Skype installed (only audio without video), and the visitors in order to hear the works need to make a phone call to Paweł Kruk (one hour artists, based in Bolinas, near San Francisco). Paweł will ‘have’ all of these works and will be ready to read them out load to those who will call him (in English or Polish). Between Warsaw and California there are 9 hours of time difference, so the gallery is open between 4 pm and 8 pm Warsaw time.
