Headless Figures

  Park Cytadela ,   Winogrady         14 Feb 2019

Unveiled as part of Poznań’s 750th birthday celebrations in 2002, this massive troop of towering, headless cast iron figures marching aimlessly across Citadel Park is officially titled “Unrecognised” ("Nierozpoznani"). 112 in all, each measuring 2 metres tall, the odd installation is the work of local arts grad and international art star Magdalena Abakanowicz, who is keeping mum on its meaning. Those with ties to Chicago might recognise a similar installation in Grant Park, while a few more of Abakanowicz's headless fright patrol can be found wandering lost in the courtyard of the Imperial Castle.
