Kindergarten is part of the series of crochet works created in the years 2005–2007. Already at that time, Wójcik transferred her interest in ordinary life to the field of culture production, paying attention to the economic mechanisms of the art world, the precarious nature of artistic labour, and the conditions for its production and distribution. The artist’s attention was drawn to apartment blocks from the 1970s. We do not usually pay attention to these monuments of socialist everyday life. In common opinion, the grey, prefab architecture causes neither delight nor nostalgia, but it definitely continues to resist the destabilisation of the property market. The crocheted, miniature buildings are placed on laminated coffee tables similar to those from the bygone era and thus institutionalized to a format allowing to exhibit and present them in museum spaces.
