About the project

Architectural sculpture does not only decorate – it often conveys information about the function and significance of the building and can also serve a role in advertising and propaganda. Ignored nowadays, this type of sculpture often hides some less serious content, featuring peculiar and ironic elements as well as embellishments that stand in stark contrast to its seriousness. Architectural sculpture is not always beautiful, it can sometimes be strange, and its appearance changes due to years of neglect and the impact of weather conditions. The exhibition at Królikarnia attempts to present to the viewers the current state of Warsaw’s architectural sculpture and to highlight forgotten narratives that concern objects that do not exist or never materialised. Materials for those who would like to find out more about the easily accessible outdoor art gallery are available as a supplement to the exhibition.
