Master's Degree project at the Department of Sculpture, The Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland - June 2019

It took nearly three years to complete the "Orchard" project, which resulted in two works: graphic and sculptural installations.  They explore the subject of the displacement of the Lemkos people, and document the changing landscape.  The first stages of the works were realized in villages in the Low Beskids, and subsequently the effects were recreated and reduced to a minimalist expression in the installation. 

The installation is made up of five imprints taken from the trunks of fruit trees, and in open space they create the memory of a household's orchard.  The prints were made through frottage, by directly rubbing the tree bark by hand.
