Balconies is a recording of a performance created among high-rise residential buildings in various parts of Gdańsk. The artist has personal connections with these places; they define her identity and conjure up strong emotions. The artist’s gesture of risking her life is like hiding from the family that has remained behind closed doors, a form of a definitive solution. She resembles the falling Icarus in a painting attributed to Pieter Brueghel, disappearing unnoticed among the chaos of everyday life.
