Description

Flight is Roman Stańczak’s extraordinary Surrealist sculpture: an inside-out luxury private aircraft. It manifests the strategy the artist has applied since his debut in the 1990s. His works, emerging from the margins of the then-nascent Polish Critical art, relied on the deformation of objects, turning them inside out or removing their external layer to launch a game with the meanings attributed to them. Flight is a monument to the paradoxes of modernity and a commentary on Polish capitalist transformation. The inside-out private aircraft used by the so-called 1%, the rich élite, is a metaphor for the reverse of the modernisation processes, a commentary on inequalities, problems with redistribution, resentment, and populism.
