Psie Kłaki – Marcelo Zammenhoff
Ritualistic light-based performance
The performance focuses on decursing the Sokołowsko area from all kinds of charms and spells cast in ill will. This applies in particular to the now infamous arson attacks on the dr. Brehmer Sanatorium, where the performance will take place.
The author, dressed as a magician will cast spells countering the bad charms and hexes, and afterwards burn the ritual incense. He will follow this up by climbing up the newly renovated Sanatorium tower, and dropping incense attached to a parachute, that will drop dramatically in the lights of lasers and smoke.
The ritual is something that the author views as his responsibility to Sokołowsko, that “charmed him” the previous year. This will probably be the first performance event on the Sokołowsko tower.
The performance is inspired by a similar action from 1992, titled “Nazism will no longer flood our souls”, held in the city center of Lodz and detrimental to the rapidly growing (after 1989) movement of consumerism glorification. The author, wearing a magicians robe, after declaring his manifesto, in a spectacular fashion smashed recently purchased bottles of coca-cola on the street pavement. He then swept the broken glass with a brush and dustpan and threw it in the trash.
