Bartosz Hołoszkiewicz. Designated evacuation area

Open 12:00-18:00. Closed Tue.       Pl. Strzegomski 2A (Fabryczna)
Exactly a decade after the 2011 events in the Tōhoku region of Japan – the earthquake, the devastating tsunami and the explosion at the Fukushima power plant - Bartosz Hołoszkiewicz evokes the trauma of those days and takes us to a safe place - a designated evacuation area. Designated by local authorities, evacuation areas have a peculiar dualism – while promising physical safety, they seem to cause psychological anxiety that often leads to trauma. A sense of detachment from the threat is combined with a powerful fear of losing the loved ones, home, previous life. In the face of the raging natural element, a designated evacuation area becomes the bridgehead of the human order. The determination to maintain order is also crucial when resettling an area ravaged by a natural cataclysm, when chaos is being replaced by the need to organise even the simplest things and objects. This exhibition can be experienced at the Wrocław Contemporary Museum.
