ABOUT THE ARTISTS
"COVID PLAYGROUNDS" | Post Noviki
The images used in "Covid Playgrounds" were taken in Warsaw during COVID-19 pandemic lockdown (April 2020), when several restrictions on the use of public space and social distancing were introduced to protect the public health.
Using the model of the popular children street game hopscotch (and incorporating “heaven” and “hell” fields which are typical elements to the Polish version of the game), Post Noviki explores the ironic, yet frightening development of the public space during a pandemic.
The work invites the viewer to contemplate on how COVID-19 will affect the way we use and perceive the public space and what the future of urban planning and city design in a post-COVID-19 world could be.
