Pawel Althamer (Poland)

My Performance, 2005 performance (Dopo Lavoro Ferroviario)
Carrying on a tradition which places the body in centre stage, this artist from Warsaw frequently brings together political, social and religious mysticism in his performances and videos. He has prepared a new performance for Going Public together with a group of female immigrants. And it is Polish women – nurses and maids – to be found at the centre of a workshop on manual work and local pottery, using the Modenese Church of San Pietro, a key meeting place for the group.
