Poznan - force

During the Zamek Residency in the winter of 2016, Tapouchi created a photographic topography of forced labor camps in Poznań. Documenting the transformations these locations have undergone, the photographs show their organic growth into the fabric of the urban landscape. After the Second World War, most of the camps were dismantled, destroyed, adapted to other purposes or rebuilt. The project "Transforming" shows how past power intervenes with everyday life, and how the the the history of War disintegrates into everyday banality. These everyday places may be forests, schools, factories, offices, military areas, or abandoned spaces. Through the everydayness, history´s nature becomes dual - at the same time overly manifested and yet invisible.
