2016 - ongoing. C-type prints on dibond, aluminium frames, 2 x 80cm x 80cm x 5cm.
Series of paired photographs. Each pair shows the interior and exterior view of the same window. Each window is from a different location.
The buildings are not selected at random. They are all in transition, suspended between their past and their future. For instance: Janus: Synagogue is taken from a former synagogue in central Poznań. This building was gutted by the Nazis and converted into a swimming pool for Wehrmacht soldiers. It remained a swimming pool until 2011, but today it is empty. There is a plan to convert it into a hotel.
The work is named Janus after the Roman god of thresholds. For him the past and the future are imaginary places, the border between them the one concrete space. With one face looking into the future and the other into the past, Janus stands between one space and another. He moves but stands still.
