Transit

Katarzyna Boguslawa Pacura

Tribute to Eward Gierek, filmstill
As the starting point for her FLACC project, Pacura took the life of the Polish Communist politician and party leader Edward Gierek (1913-2001), whose Communist ideas were cemented while he was working in Genk’s coalmines. Standing on the slag heap in the cold, Pacura repeats over and over again the words of The Internationale, international socialism’s anthem, in three languages. The result is a poetical work, but as Pacura grows increasing tired and mistakes occur in her delivery, it arouses compassion and despair. It is a work about the powerlessness of the individual in society, about the individual swimming against the current and eventually losing the battle.
