Nomadic Park is a mobile installation of trees that were uprooted due to a reconstruction of the street. The eradicated trees were replanted into wheeled garbage bins and moved around the city, giving them new life and symbolic meaning.
Specifically dedicated to the world’s 51 million refugees, asylum seekers or internally displaced persons, the performance and mobile installation recreated the movement of refugees forced to leave their homes and travel to a new and uncertain destination. As local residents encountered these living beings placed in mobile dumpsters, they were forced to experience the real life circumstances of refugees throughout the globe.
At the end of the travel the trees took the place of the park, cut down a few years before, during the reconstruction of the main street of the city.
Events took place in the frame of exhibition Deprivation Arsenał Gallery, curator Monika Szewczyk
