Most of the monuments in Warsaw are invisible to passersby. Made of stone blend into the surrounding space, become negligible part of everyday reality. Often difficult for Poles commemorate wartime experiences, others verge on controversial social and political issues.
Observing these Iza Rutkowska from the Forms and Shapes Foundation decided to create a living sculpture, which is to mobilize people to dialogue and integration. She decided to introduce to the people a faithful friend from childhood – teddy bear. Enlarged to gigantic proportions, so that everyone can climb on him, hug and come back to the children’s times, the cuddly walks around Warsaw. Soon to fly in other places around the world.
Creation of the object is supposed to debunk monuments and give the residents of Warsaw sense of the existence of “public friend.” The project is coming out of the philosophy of change, of virus infection of the city, which Forms and Shapes Foundation practice for many years. Setting strange, impractical Hand Made 3D to make people reflect on the place where they live.
