Passing through Joan Jonas’ reinstallation of Mirage (1976/2005) at the Museum of Modern Art, one enters a black room with a single screen displaying the film Sculpture Plein-Air Swiecie 2009 (2009). This unostentatious installation, Projects 91: Artur Zmijewski (on view October 28th 2009 through February 1st 2010), deals with the complex situation of the working class, perceptions of such, its place in society, and its relationship to the artistic process. In this film, as a reexamination of similar experiments in 1960’s Poland, the Polish filmmaker Zmijewski presents the situation of seven artists joining forces with steel workers to represent the generic “worker” in large public sculptures. Throughout the project, beginning with the artists explaining their plans and ideas to the steel workers, the focus is on the interaction between the artists, the workers, and the works of art. The two groups gain insight into and understanding of one another as the workers aid in the planning/construction of the steel art sculptures and the artists don worker’s jumpsuits and even operate forklifts. The worker’s plight is presented by the artists in their sculptures which depict the workers as pieces in a puzzle or as human targets from a shooting range. Opinions on the art and the project by the steel workers further contribute to the sense of the worker’s socially misunderstood position. This exhibition takes up the timeless issue of the worker and his/her social image as assigned by others and presents it in a reflective way.
