'The Unrecognised' art installation by Magda Abakanowicz

  Park Cytadela ,   Winogrady         23 May 2023

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 “The 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.
