Panopticon is the idea of the English philosopher Jeremy Bentham, of a system of control, the concept of which allows prisoners of an institution to be observed by a single security guard, without the inmates being able to tell whether they are being watched. Thus, the inmates are effectively compelled to regulate their own behaviour. In Małgorzata Mizia's works, such sense of imprisonment accompanies animals, birds, humanoids, all winged creatures, winged - because it is deeply rooted in the Polish character to remain free, always ready to break free from the shackles. In contrast to those are wingless characters, the ones experiencing everyday suffering. It is precisely this diversity that makes Polish history so colourful.
