Work Overview

Right-wing prejudice has recently infiltrated the politics of every country in the globe. Barriers are increasingly being put up to protect national borders, that are in themselves, not natural, but socio-political constructs. This composition is a reaction to this - Pokój w Pokoju translates as "peace in a room"; the composition acts as a statement of dissent regarding the behaviour of current political leaders.

The word peace is in every language. Pokój w Pokoju begins by setting this word in the languages of the warring factions in the current Syrian conflict and progresses to represent conflicting sides in Myanmar, Sri Lanka (a war that I experienced), Vietnam, Cambodia and the colossal conflict of WWII, the war for which Marian Kołodziej was a victim.
