Abstract (English)

"For Lewis & Taggart, The Unfinished Reconstruction of Ujazdowski Castle began shortly after their arrival to Warsaw in the spring of 2012. Upon discovering several thousand identical postcards depicting the castle in the late 1980’s, they set to work transforming the image into an alternate vision of the castle’s continuous evolution. Repeatedly dissected, reconfigured, layered upon one another, and combined with material gathered from the castle grounds and the city of Warsaw, the postcards reemerged as a collection of collages, sculptures and assemblages, each extending the potential for metamorphosis embedded within its place of origin." -- Distributor's website.
